TFTP Time Out
September 28, 2010 04:48AM
I was able to boot Openwrt from TFTP with help from ecc and others. I'd like to make TFTP boot the first in my boot sequence. It seems by default TFTP will wait long time and try many times if the file is not available. Are there ways to make TFTP in Jeff's u-boot to time out sooner and try only once before it gives up so u-boot can boot the next in "bootcmd" list?

Assuming that TFTP is timing out because the TFTP host is not active, you can just add a 'ping check' before the TFTP commands. See the netconsole thread for an example of how to do this.

It worked as you suggested.
