Jumpstart boot server configuration for solaris 10 SPARC

I am trying to configure a Jump Start boot server and i have assigned a seperate interface on a boot server for all the clients to boot irrespective of their subnets or IP. However clients from another subnets are not getting booted and they are showing timeout arp request at boot net icon... 

Is there anything i need to do from network, switches or router side. As I have already created /etc/bootparams /etc/ethers and /tftpboot files following the jumpstart boot server creation process and I am trying to configure a Jump Start boot server and i have assigned a seperate interface on a boot server for all the clients to boot irrespective of their subnets or IP.

If any port need to be open from the firewall what that port would be or any other suggestion in this regards will definitely appreciated. 

Thanks 
If the machines you are jumpstarting are also SPARC and so use rarp to initially get their IP then this will only work on the local subnet as rarp is a broadcast protocol. Unless you have some way of relaying rarp. 

If you are using DHCP then you need to configure DHCP relaying.
