Does the helper OS need to be the same as the same as the Ignite server OS so there is complete compatability ?

Ignite-UX 10.20 servers install and manage HP-UX 10.x on clients. This is the "A" version.
Ignite-UX 11.0 servers install and manage HP-UX 10.x and 11.0 clients. This is the "B" version.
Does this help? Here's the current link to Ignite for you:

an easy solution is to install an HP-UX 11 on the subnet where are your HP-UX 10.20 client in order to access the correct runtime.
Nevertheless, I never seen an other solution...

Does the helper need to run the exact same version as the ignite server ?
If so that means that as my Ignite server is running a B version (on 11 server), then the helper must also be running a B version so I have to upgrade the helper OS to put on the B version Ignite core, tricky as it is on a different subnet so I need a helper !!!!

I had the same problem with a HPUX 11.00 server and wanting to install workstations on a subnet dedicated to HPUX 10.20.
It's a shame that Ignite versions A.XXX and B.XXX can't recognize each other (with the same XXX number)
If you don't want (or can't) install a HPUX 11.00 helper on the client subnet, there is still a solution.
The client workstation must be alive and running at least HPUX 9.X. So you can install it directly from the Ignite server, without a boot helper, using the command 'bootsys' (i don't use the graphic interface, but you can do it too through it).
During the installation, you can change the IP address of the client, but not the name.
And be careful : if you interrupt the installation, the client won't be able to boot again, so the workstation is no more "alive" and you can't re-install it without a boot helper.
