Short Description
PXE iPXE netboot.xyz TFTP server via Docker
Full Description

Docker Netboot.xyz

A very minimal TFTP server running on Alpine 3.5 in a Docker container to serve Netboot.xyz.

Git Repo: https://github.com/rjocoleman/docker-netboot.xyz

Docker Hub: https://hub.docker.com/r/rjocoleman/netboot.xyz/

Usage

Run the docker container:

docker run -p 69:69/udp rjocoleman/netboot.xyz

# OR

docker create \
 --name=netboot.xyz \
 --restart=always \
 -p 69:69/udp \
 rjocoleman/netboot.xyz

Set your DHCP options (standard PXE boot stuff):

next-server 192.168.1.1 # your docker host (or container static IP)
filename netboot.xyz.kpxe # or netboot.xyz-undionly.kpxe

Errata

You could also use a Docker network to give the container its own discrete IP to avoid collision with other port 69/udp running on the host.

I noticed an iPXE error once when selecting a menu item that downloaded an application from a remote source. Disabling signature checks (in the Netboot.xyz menu) bypasses the error.
