Hello, I'm receiving PXE-E32 TFTP open timeout during PXE boot for WDS. I'm attempting to PXE boot my laptop and it receives an address, but there's no pulling down the boot file/image in order to begin the process. DHCP and WDS are running on separate servers. DHCP is Server 2008 and WDS is Server 2012 R2.

Options 066 (WDS server) and 067 (boot\x64\ have both been specified and Port 69 is open on the WDS server.  

We tried downloading the file through a TFTP client and received there is a problem when parsing the received packet.

Any advice on how to proceed?

Thank you!
