How to find Bootp Server on Network?

We have noticed that some of our Printers are getting IP addresses from any Bootp server. We never configured it but maybe there is Bootp server on the network. Is there any way to find it?

Wireshark - use it to capture the data.

Plug the printer into a switch port that you can monitor.

Connect the machine running wireshark into the monitoring port.

Turn the printer off.  Start wireshark.  Turn printer on.  Capture the bootp packets.  Get the IP/Ethernet address of the server that responds.

Find that server.
