-====== Get PXE Knife working with QEMU over HTTP ======+====== Get PxeLinux and PXE-Knife working with QEMU over HTTP ======
-I am taking similar approach as I took for TFTP for which QEMU + PXE Knife combination is working if I use qemu TFTP stack. +Note : use latest version of Pxelinux to work over HTTP, for me version 3.80 worked.
-Here are the things that are working ​for me. +
-<​code>​ +
-qemu -net nic -net user -fda ./gpxe.dsk -bootp /pxelinux.0 -tftp /​home/​myname/​for_pxe_knife/​ +
-</​code>​ +
-which boots pxe-knife over tftp and  +
-<​code>​ +
-qemu -fda gpxe.dsk -net nic -net user -bootp http://​​gpxe/​gtest.gpxe +
-</​code>​ +
-boots gtest.gpxe which is copy of [[http://​etherboot.org/​gtest/​gtest.gpxe]].\\+
-But when I try and use HTTP with qemu over pxe_knife which is based on __pxelinux__,​ +Following ​is the way to run Pxe-knife (or any pxelinux ​based system) over http.
-it does not work.+
 <​code> ​ <​code> ​
 qemu -fda gpxe.dsk -net nic -net user -bootp http://​​pxeknife/​pxelinux.0 qemu -fda gpxe.dsk -net nic -net user -bootp http://​​pxeknife/​pxelinux.0
 </​code>​ </​code>​
-It loads pxelinux.0 successfully,​ but fails in loading ​//pxeknife/default// file with error + 
 +or you can boot the online version of PXE-Knife using following command. 
 +qemu -fda gpxe.dsk -net nic -net user -bootp http://​alien.doesntexist.org/pxeknife/pxelinux.0 
 +==== With gpxe embedded script ==== 
 +I recompiled the gpxe with following embedded script ../​contrib/​scripts/​forpxeknife.gpxe, ​
 <​code>​ <​code>​
 +echo "Hi, We will be using PXEKnife from URL http://​www.alien.doesntexist.org/​pxeknife/"​
 +dhcp net0
 +set 209:string /​pxeknife.cfg/​default
 +set 210:string http://​www.alien.doesntexist.org/​pxeknife/​
 +echo "Here we go"
 +chain http://​www.alien.doesntexist.org/​pxeknife/​pxelinux.0
 +and I compile with following command ​
 + make clean && make  EMBEDDED_IMAGE=../​contrib/​scripts/​forpxeknife.gpxe
-Trying to load: pxelinux.cfg/default +I execute qemu with no extra parameters at-all
-Unable to locate configuration file+<​code>​ 
 +qemu -fda gpxe.dsk
 </​code>​ </​code>​
 +===== Ready to use PXE-Knife over HTTP =====
 +If you want to try out PXE-Knife without installing then visit page  [[pxeknifeOverHttp]]
 +==== Problems ====
 +In case you encounter any problems with this then you can refer the page [[QemuPxeKnifeHTTPProbs]]
