we have working with x-350 and L2edge licence level. if I understand all correct, then we dont have ipforwarding...

Is possible bootpreplay without ipforwarding?

secondary - and if no, then why ipforwarding is cut out, but bootprelay are still in cli? is there any other functionality?

Hello Modris,

Bootprelay does rely on routing to reach the server. I am not sure why the command is available in the CLI.

Considering this is a L2 switch I would assume that the traffic would be forwarded to a L3 capable switch or a router if the device needs to send information out of its subnet. It would be this device where bootprelay or a bootprelay equivalent would need to be configured (Ie Iphelper for Cisco).

Hope this helps!
