Configuration settings for PXE Everywhere Responder.

PXE Everywhere Responder is a 64-bit application, and its registry values exist under: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\1E\PXELiteServer

Registry settings:

Installer properties:

Registry nameRegistry typeInstaller propertyDefault valueDescription

AltPxeClientPort

REG_DWORD

This value does not have an installer property.

Registry value is not created.

This is the UDP port that the PXE Everywhere Responder will reply to the PXE client (alternate boot loader) on.

If this registry setting does not exist then port 2068 is used.

AltPxeServerPort 

REG_DWORD

This value does not have an installer property.

Registry value is not created.

This is the UDP port that the alternate boot loader will broadcast the custom PXE request on. The PXE Everywhere Agents must be configured to listen on this port, so it must be the same port defined by DHCPPORT when installing the PXE Everywhere Agent.

If this registry setting does not exist then port 2067 is used.

BindTo

REG_SZ

This value does not have an installer property.

Registry value is not created.

Comma-separated list of IP addresses which PXE Everywhere Responder listens for DHCP (PXE) and TFTP requests. If not present, PXE Everywhere Local listens on all IP addresses. Use this if there is more than one network interface.

Debug

REG_DWORD
DEBUG
1

The debug level. Leave this at 1 unless 1E Support recommends a change. The range is:

  • 0x1: Basic logging
  • 0x4: Extra "application-specific" logging
  • 0x8: Extra registry logging
  • 0x10: Increased general logging

The following two bits will perform centralized logging via SOAP calls to the PXE Central Server:

  • 0x1000: Logs election results
  • 0x2000: Logs TFTP file transfer start and stop (includes statistics).

DefaultBlockSize

REG_DWORD

This value does not have an installer property.

Registry value is not created.

Default TFTP block size. 512 if not specified.

DhcpPort

REG_DWORD
DHCPPORT
67

For a new install, it is not necessary to use the DHCPPORT installer property on Responders, because DhcpPort must always be 67 (default).

However, if you are upgrading a legacy PXE Everywhere Agent that has support for DHCP Snooping enabled, it will not be using DHCPPORT=67 and you will need to specify DHCPPORT=67 when upgrading it to be a Responder.

If you are upgrading a legacy PXE Everywhere Responder (an Agent in Static Responder mode) to be a new PXE Everywhere Responder then it will retain DhcpPort=67 during the upgrade, and it is not necessary to use the DHCPPORT installer property.

ElectionWaitSecs

REG_DWORD
ELECTIONWAITSECS
1
Time (in seconds) to wait for responses to the election request before broadcasting the result. Can be any positive integer value above 0.

ElectionWeight

REG_DWORD
ELECTIONWEIGHT
50
When set, this manually created registry value determines the likelihood of the machine winning elections, all else being equal. The value must be between 0 and 99 inclusive. The higher the value the the higher the likelihood of winning. If no value is set, a default of 50 is used.

EncryptionType

REG_DWORD
USEFIPS
0
Use of FIPS compliant encryption for communications. You must use the same setting on all PXE Everywhere Agents.
  • 0 – use default encryption
  • 1 – use FIPS encryption

Flags

REG_DWORD

This value does not have an installer property.

Registry value is not created.

If set to 1 the DHCP listener adds an ASCII terminator character to the bootfile name in the DHCP acknowledgement message. Some HP machines require this.

Any value other than 1 is treated as default 0.

IgnoreGatewayAddress

REG_DWORD

This value does not have an installer property.

Registry value is not created.

If set to any value other then 0 the DHCP listener ignores the gateway address.

If not set then assumes default 0 .

IgnoreWireless

REG_DWORD

This value does not have an installer property.


0

If set to 1 then PXE Everywhere Agent does not bind on wireless adapters.

Any value other than 1 is treated as default 0.

n/a
INSTALLDIR
%ProgramFiles%\1E\PXEEverywhere\ResponderInstallation folder.

LogFileName

REG_SZ
LOGPATH
This property only specifies the location of the log file.
%ProgramData%\1E\PXEEverywhere\ PXEEverywhereResponder.log

The location of the PXE Everywhere Responder log file. The path is created if it does not exist.

The logfile name is PXEEverywhereResponder.log

LogFormat

REG_DWORD
LOGFORMAT
1

Formatting depends on which bits are set:

  • bit 0 (0x01) use Configuration Manager-compatible format (default)
  • bit 3 (0x08) do no formatting
  • bit 7 (0x80) include milliseconds in the timestamp

MaxLogFilesize

REG_DWORD
MAXLOGFILESIZE
10485760

Maximum size for the log file in bytes. Once the file reaches the specified size, a copy is made with a .lo_ extension in the same directory. A new log file will then be created.

Default is 10485760 (10 MBytes).

Mode

REG_DWORD
MODE
3
Mode must be 3 – Responder mode

SessionTimeoutSecs

REG_DWORDThis value does not have an installer property.Registry value is not created.

Timeout for the TFTP listener. 600 if not specified or 0 is specified. Can be any positive integer value.

TftpRoot

REG_SZ
TFTPROOT
%ProgramData%\1E\PXEEverywhere\TftpRoot

Location for the PXE Everywhere Responder TFTPROOT directory.

Do not change the location of TFTPROOT. If you need to do this then please contact 1E for guidance.
