Hi all,

Finally I got the Atlas 4Kc board running YAMON to talk to Host PC running RedHat Linux 9 & download vmlinux.rec throught tftp. I have set-up NFS export in the same PC under /export/RedHat7.1

After the vmlinux.rec got downloaded, I issued the following command on the YAMON (MIPS tartget) prompt to start the downloaded linux kernel:

go . nsfroot=4.42.102.7:/export/RedHat7.1

while the Linux kernel was booting up, I monitored the tcp/ip traffic on the host PC using 'tcpdump -n'. The Linux did not send any packets. why?

YAMON console dump of Linux kernel start-up messages:
