The bootptest program is a combination of original and derived works.
The main program module (bootptest.c) is original work by

The packet printing module (print-bootp.c) is a slightly modified
version of a file from the BSD tcpdump program.
This program includes software developed by the University of
California, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and its contributors.
