Re: [K12OSN] LTSP Setup question.

I interpret his question to mean "the main school LAN, so I can hook up my workstations directly to the network drops going to the wiring closet(s)." I have to do this in my environment; we use 10.x.x.x addresses behind our enterprise firewall. I'm not sure he means "globally routable IP addresses" specifically, though it's possible that his district or school may indeed use globally routable addresses on their LAN behind their firewall. We did this for a long time up until about two years ago with our Class B, and some very old, very badly written programs still, alas, require them to function correctly.


What gets me about that is that the bosses are willing to give millions of dollars--per year--to Microsoft, but they won't spend $50,000 to have these ancient, badly written programs rewritten! Go figure.

Why would you want your workstations on a public IP number?

I downloaded K-12LTSP and I have it installed and everything
seems to be running fine. However, I would like to have the
configuration be a little different than the default.

I want my server to be setup with only 1 NIC and I'd like the workstations
to remain on the public LAN.
So I guess this means I would have to have my already existing DHCP
server hand out the location of the LTSP tftp server?

I'm not sure what else I would have to change. Is there any existing docs
out there for this type of setup?
