Note that since Web sharing is not in the Sharing system preferences, it is no longer considered an essential system service so the OS will not automatically configure the firewall for it. Therefore when you enable it, you will be asked to allow the Web server process httpd to allow incoming connections. If you plan on using the server as a test server for your computer, only then do you not need to allow connections through the firewall; however, if you want to host pages for other computers to see, then you will need to allow connections. Keep in mind that the steps so far will only keep the server running while the system is booted, so if you restart then the server will be disabled again.

Does it use bootpd and do we need to manually configure it with a proper Ip range?

Does it use something else?

Only just discovered the bootpd thing, so do not have more info for you here as I continue to troubleshoot. But hopefully this will get you somewhere. See who is the first one to the finish line.
