why wont my indy receive a kernel via tftp?

There is a bug in the indy PROM preventing it from receiving a kernel via tftp from ports higher than 32767. To fix this problem make your tftpd respond on a port lower than 32767. On linux this is done with the following command "echo 2048 32767 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range". Also the command "echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_no_pmtu_disc" was neccesary on my linux server to make the indy boot correctly, but i think this made th dhcpd work right, and had nothing to do with tftp.
