I forgot to ask, what OS are you attempting to load on the HP box? It
being a RISC chip and all. Also try removing the -a option and creating
a /etc/rbootd.conf file with the HP cards mac address in it.

Subject: rbootd, am I missing something?

I've just aquired an old HP PA-RISC 712/60
which I'm trying to boot over LAN using 'rbootd'
on my FreeBSD 5.0 box.
As root, I type:

 /usr/libexec/rbootd -ad -i tl0

The daemon runs, but immediately exits with no error
code and without creating /tmp/rbootd.dbg. It does
however create /var/run/rbootd.pid.

Has anyone got any idea what's going on here? What
am I missing?
