Question about Computers & Internet

Edubuntu 7.10 Linux enables server-based computing using thin-client computers. In operation, the server gives all operating software to the network-attached thin clients because the thin-clients have no operating softwre of their own. I need a specific graphics driver for the server to give to a particular thin-client. Is this a problem you could help me resolve?

    Alas, I've been there already HughV.

    In fact, I've been working to resolve this one for several weeks.

    I've tried everything I have found out there but still no luck.

    I think the problem may only be truly understood by a user of Edubuntu 7.10 who is experiencing the same issue. I'll carry on hacking, but would wecome contact with any Edubuntu 7.10 user who is using thin client PXE devices on their network.

    Thank you HughV.

DHCP Server configuration in Linux


Linux is a UNIX based operating system. It is a server operating system. REDHAT Linux is Enterprise version of Linux. Now a day's Most of corporate sectors use red hat Linux as server in their company because it is secure very much.

Full form of DHCP "Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. DHCP server assigns IP addresses and other network configuration information like subnet mask, broadcast address, etc to computers on a network. The DHCP assignments are the following.

Lease Request: Client broadcasts their request to DHCP server with a source address of 0.0.0.0 and a destination address of 255.255.255.255.
IP lease offer: DHCP server replies with an IP address, subnet mask, network gateway, name of the domain, name servers, duration of the lease and the IP address of the DHCP server.

Lease Selection: Client receives offer and broadcasts to al DHCP servers that will accept given offer so that other DHCP server need not make an offer.

The DHCP server then sends an ack to the client. The client is configured to use TCP/IP. Lease Renewal: When half of the lease time has expired, the client will issue a new request to the DHCP server.

Installation of DHCP server: First of all while install the RedHat Linux enterprise version server be careful about the ports and the services must be turned on. To create DHCP server in Linux first download DHCP RPM package and install with "rpm-ivh" command. Where I have done it there I have create YUM server, so easily I have download and install it by YUM (yum install dhcp version). DHCP package will locate in /usr/share/doc/at Linux file system. I copied the DHCP's files from /usr/share/doc/ to /etc/dhcpd.conf.. Then I started to configure the dhcpd.conf file to route the DHCP server in there local network. I have open the configuration file with "vi" command. Then commented out the lines from "default gateway to option netbios" because system don't read the commented lines. After that I set the range of IP address in dynamic- bootp of their local assumption of system. I have change the "next-server" with the dhcp server name and have also change the fixed address with the dhcp server IP address (end range of dynamic IP). It is very easy job to configure DHCP server. After configure the .conf file of dhcp just turn on the service with "chkconfig" command and restart the dhcp service. After that entire job I reboot the system. And after rebooting of server I turned on the other client system. While startup the client system without static IP address all of those picked up IP from dhcp server and going on successfully. I have prefer the command line mode to do the total job.
The DHCP server configure file is following:

ddns-update-style interim
ignore client-updates

subnet 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
# The range of IP addresses the server
# will issue to DHCP enabled PC clients
# booting up on the network

range 192.168.1.201 192.168.1.220;
# Set the amount of time in seconds that
# a client may keep the IP address

default-lease-time 86400;
max-lease-time 86400;

# Set the default gateway to be used by
# the PC clients

option routers 192.168.1.1;
# Don't forward DHCP requests from this
# NIC interface to any other NIC
# interfaces

option ip-forwarding off;

# Set the broadcast address and subnet mask
# to be used by the DHCP clients

option broadcast-address 192.168.1.255;
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;

# Set the NTP server to be used by the
# DHCP clients

option ntp-servers 192.168.1.100;

# Set the DNS server to be used by the
# DHCP clients

option domain-name-servers 192.168.1.100;

# If you specify a WINS server for your Windows clients,
# you need to include the following option in the dhcpd.conf file:

option netbios-name-servers 192.168.1.100;

# You can also assign specific IP addresses based on the clients'
# ethernet MAC address as follows (Host's name is "laser-printer":

host laser-printer {
hardware ethernet 08:00:2b:4c:59:23;
fixed-address 192.168.1.222;
}
}
#
# List an unused interface here
#
subnet 192.168.2.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
}

Dear Sir, We have one IBM x206 8482 I8S Serer. We have loaded Win XPP to this system and configured as Thin Client Server. The Thin Clients hang during the operation. The Thin client Vendor identifies this...


You have a compatibility issue as per your comments and you have no choice but to use the components and operating system that will work with each other. Without drivers you are in deep doo doo and there is no forcing the issue.

What is nap server?


Network Access Protection (NAP) is a Microsoft technology for controlling network access of a computer host based on the system health of the host, first introduced in Windows Server 2008.
With Network Access Protection, system administrators of an organization's computer network can define policies for system health requirements. Examples of system health requirements are whether the computer has the most recent operating system updates installed, whether the computer has the latest version of the anti-virus software signature, or whether the computer has a host-based firewall installed and enabled. Connecting or communicating computers have their health status evaluated. Computers that comply with system health requirements have full access to the network. Administrators can configure health policies that make it possible to ensure that computers not in compliance with system health requirements have restricted access to the network.

Hi. I want to set up a server and run dumb terminals (thin clients) off of it. Can anyone give me a basic run-down about how I do that?


You would setup Windows Server. Windows Server 2003 and 2008 Small Business Server comes with a license of Terminal Services Server.

You would first need to setup your Windows Server. Install it according to at least minimum requirements.

Make sure you assign this server the correct role. If this is the primary server and if you intend on hosting dns and dhcp on this machine, then please make sure you are assigning this server these roles.

You will need to create user accounts so that you can log into from your thin clients.

Next you need to run the install for Terminal Server.

Next you need to configure each thin client.

Next try to access each thin client via Remote Desktop as well as the server.

This is the basic run down of the process. If you do not know how to setup a server then you will need to ask that question as this is very detailed. Also you will need to be more detailed in your question as to whether this is a linux based network or a windows based network.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to give me a good rating as well as your vote.
