Errata ID: 544

Status: Verified
Type: Technical

Section 3.1.1 says:

  If a client falls into this category, it SHOULD set (to 1) the
  newly-defined BROADCAST flag in the 'flags' field of BOOTREPLY
  messages it generates.  This will provide a hint to BOOTP servers
  and relay agents that they should attempt to broadcast their
  BOOTREPLY messages to the client.

It should say:

  If a client falls into this category, it SHOULD set (to 1) the
  newly-defined BROADCAST flag in the 'flags' field of BOOTREQUEST
  messages it generates.  This will provide a hint to BOOTP servers
  and relay agents that they should attempt to broadcast their BOOTREPLY
  messages to the client.

Notes:

(i.e. the first instance of "BOOTREPLY" should be "BOOTREQUEST".)
