RIPL is another acronym or abbreviation related to IPL. It stands for Remote Initial Program Load. Just like IPL it refers to the initial loading of software, but in this case the software comes from a remote system. Network boot is a form of RIPL, but the software could also come via a serial link.

This is another IBM related term.

Sun calls this method of IPL RPL. The server daemon, rpld, works only with Solaris for x86.
