I am trying to get Windows Deployment Services setup and running and can't the PC to PXE boot.  When I boot it up, it gets a DHCP address, but then I get the 'PXE-E32: TFTP open timeout' message and then don't get any further.
Details about the issue:
  I noticed that the Proxy IP address is pointing to a local server, but not the PXE server.  Not sure where it is getting this address.
  I did put the PXE server in option 066 in DHCP.
  I did use PortQuery and the PXE server has tftp listening on UDP port 69.
  Firewall is not running on PXE server.

Any ideas on what I should do next to fix this issue?
