7.5. Client Reception

Don't forget to process ARP requests for my own IP address (if I know it). [UDP checksum.] The client should discard incoming packets that: are not IP/UDPs addressed to the boot port; are not BOOTREPLYs; do not match my IP address (if I know it) or my hardware address; do not match my transaction id. Otherwise we have received a successful reply. 'yiaddr' will contain my IP address, if I didnt know it before. 'file' is the name of the file name to TFTP 'read request'. The server address is in 'siaddr'. If 'giaddr' (gateway address) is nonzero, then the packets should be forwarded there first, in order to get to the server.
