Registry nameRegistry typeInstaller propertyDefault valueDescription

AltPxeClientPort

REG_DWORD

This value does not have an installer property.


Registry value is not created.

This registry setting is relevant only on the Responder.

Multiexcerpt
MultiExcerptNameAltPxeClientPort

This is the UDP port that the PXE Everywhere Agent 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 registry setting is relevant only on the Responder.

Multiexcerpt
MultiExcerptNameAltPxeServerPort

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.


AlwaysBootImageId

REG_SZRegistry value is not created.

A string value containing a valid package id of a boot image. If specified, do not get boot image ID from PXE Everywhere Central but use this one instead.

AlwaysIsMandatory

REG_DWORDRegistry value is not created.

Whether the boot image is mandatory (value 1) or not (0). Only relevant in combination with AlwaysBootImageId.

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 Agent 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.

CommsPort

REG_DWORD
COMMSPORT
2012
Multiexcerpt
MultiExcerptNameCommsPort
Used for UDP election broadcast messages, this must be opened in the Windows firewall.

ConfigServerAddress

REG_SZ
CONFIGSERVERURL
Multiexcerpt
MultiExcerptNameConfigServerAddress

URL for the PXE Everywhere Central web service in the format: http://servername/PXELite/PXELiteConfiguration.asmx

where <servername> is the name of the server (or FQDN) where the PXE Everywhere Central web service is installed.

Note
iconfalse
The http prefix to the URL is case sensitive and must be entered in all lower case letters.

Debug

REG_DWORD
DEBUG
1


Multiexcerpt
MultiExcerptNameDebug

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


Multiexcerpt
MultiExcerptNameDhcpPort

The UDP port on which the PXE Everywhere Agent will listen for PXE requests.

When manually installing the PXE Everywhere Agent, if the DHCP Snooping option is enabled in the installer UI, the default port is changed from 67 (43 hex) to 2067 (813 hex). If the DHCPPORT installer property is used to specify a port other than 67, the installer UI assumes the DHCP Snooping option is enabled.

If DHCP Snooping is being used, then DhcpPort on Agents must be the same value as the AltPxeServerPort on the Responder(s). The default value of AltPxeServerPort is 2067. If a value other than 2067 is specified as a custom port number, you will also need to manually create the AltPxeServerPort (and AltPxeClientPort) registry values on Responders.

If DHCP Snooping is not being used, then this port must be 67, and you do not need to install Responders.

Do not use the DHCPPORT installer property on Responders, where DhcpPort must always be 67.


ElectionWaitSecs

REG_DWORD
ELECTIONWAITSECS
1


Multiexcerpt
MultiExcerptNameElectionWaitSecs
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


Multiexcerpt
MultiExcerptNameElectionWeight
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


Multiexcerpt
MultiExcerptNameEncryptionType
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
Note
This property only specifies the location of the log file.


%ProgramData%\1E\PXEEverywhere\ PXEEverywhereResponder.log


Multiexcerpt
MultiExcerptNameLogFileName

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


Multiexcerpt
MultiExcerptNameLogFormat

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

MaxBlockSize

REG_DWORD


Info

This value does not have an installer property, but is configurable when deployed using 1E Client Deployment Assistant. Please refer to

Installing PXE Everywhere Agents: Preparing a Configuration Manager Application for PXE Everywhere Agent using the 1E Client Deployment Assistant

Registry value is not created.

Maximum value for the block size (in bytes). PXE Everywhere uses the system MTU to derive the size of TFTP packets. May require limiting when using VPN tunnels. In most cases, this value should not be altered.

Default is 8192 (8 kbytes).

Note

The actual block size used for the TFTP protocol is the lesser value of the tftpBlockSize and the MaxBlockSize registry values. The tftpBlockSize value is specified in the CreateBCD.exe utility, and does not have an installer property.

MaxLogFilesize

REG_DWORD
MAXLOGFILESIZE
10485760


Multiexcerpt
MultiExcerptNameMaxLogFilesize

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

Mode must be one of the following:

  • 0 – Agent mode, with no elections
  • 1 – Agent mode, the election instigator becomes the master (only to be used for testing)
  • 2 – Agent mode, with elections (default)
  • be 3 – Responder mode
