NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     mopd - MOP loader daemon

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     mopd [-adf] [interface]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     mopd services MOP Load requests on the Ethernet connected to
interface or
     all  interfaces  if -a is given.  In a load request received
by mopd a
     filename can be given.  This is the normal case  for,  e.g.,
     servers.   If a filename isn't given mopd must know what image to load.

     Upon receiving a request, mopd checks if the requested  file
exists in
     /tftpboot/mop.   The  filename is normally all uppercase and
with an extension
 of .SYS.  If the filename isn't given, the Ethernet address of the
     target  is used as filename (e.g., 08002b09f4de.SYS), and it
might be a
     soft link to another file.

     mopd supports two kinds of files.  The file is first checked
to see if it
     is  in  a.out(5) format.  If not, a few of Digital's formats
are checked.

     In normal operation, mopd forks a copy of itself and runs in
the background.
  Anomalies and errors are reported via syslog(3).

     The options are as follows:

     -a       Listen on all the Ethernets attached to the system.
If -a is
             omitted, an interface must be specified.

     -d      Run in debug mode, with all the  output  to  stdout.
The process
             will run in the foreground.

     -f      Run in the foreground.
