No, that's exactly how it works. The IBM i will send a BOOTP request,

your PCs.


Out of morbid curiosity, once the box is up and running, can we freely switch the box on which the LAN Console lives, and have it recognized? Or do we have to tell it something?

And I'm told that the "console port" IP address must be different from the "general use" IP address? And that they're also separate cables, going into separate physical sockets on the back of the machine? Is that correct?
