Default NetBSD on Synology 107+

Greetings to the whole group.
I am a systems enthusiast, I use linux for several years in an exclusive way.
I’m trying to learn (never ends) with a little difficulty with the English language... so you’ll forgive me if I use a translator...

I am currently working on a synology 107+ that I have been doing for many years... I have put it back doing some hardware maintenance.
the problem was triggered when I realized that the official website was no longer available firmware for my model....
searching on the internet an alternative I came to NetBSD...
I followed this quida:
https://wiki.netbsd.org/ports/sandpoint/instsynology/

but my limitations arose when I failed to boot altboot.bin via TFTP....
I hope to find among you some advice and some tips to get ahead of this issue... and clearly increase personal knowledge...
I attach a bit of info in the following post...
thanks

Giuseppe

The wiki document says
Code:
_MPC824X > setenv ipaddr 192.168.0.106
_MPC824X > setenv serverip 192.168.0.5
_MPC824X > setenv netmask 255.255.255.0
_MPC824X > tftpboot 0x1000000 altboot.bin
In the screenshot of your attempt to load the altboot utility you forgot to use the hexadecimal specifier : 0x
You used 1000000 while it should have been 0x1000000

PS Sorry, it seems that 1000000 has been interpreted correctly as 0x1000000

Don't know how to troubleshoot the tftpboot hangup. If you have a serial line connection you could use the alternative method with Kermit to load altboot

if I'm wrong, to use kermit you need to launch the "loadb" command which is not included in my U-boot. unless I can use some other command listed in the help list posted on... I have no idea how to proceed... if you have any info please post.

Thank you

It looks like you used Windows as a TFTP server. Maybe you try with using NetBSD as TFTP server?

I also wonder whether it is needed to enable PXE. Try to disable it.

Thanks for the reply.
as a server, I used a synology 118.
I'll try to exclude PXE, but I don't think I'll be successful.
Thank you

If you configure NetBSD or OpenBSD (on an USB stick for example) as tftp server you can run tcpdump to watch and analyze the network traffic. That way you can see what exactly is the cause why the file is not transferred completely.
