Well *that* resolve the "not an IP" error [and, of course, on to my next issue - which I need to do my homework on before bringing anything up here].

A quick diff of the 2.00 and trunk doesn't give me any good feel for any one simple change to 2.00 that would fix the issue.

Is trunk stable with respect to the core functionality? Or is there a path to a definitive patch to 2.00 for this issue given that it works on trunk?

I've tried the following to resolve this issue:

/usr/libexec/tftpd server and the "in.tftpd" (also known as the
"tftpd-hal" server?).

* I've built the grub image file using grub-mkimage ... net tftpd pxe

* I've built the grub image file core.0 using grub-mknetdir.

In all cases I'm getting "error: not an IP".

Not sure where to go next with this.  Any guidance would be appreciated.

Could you try current trunk? If it does not work I would raise issue on
