Question about NComputing L230 Network Terminal

NComputing connected to existing Lan network

We have an internal LAN Network around the University Campus and need to replace some PCs for NComputing L230 Terminals. Can I just plug it using the existing Lan cables and the L230 will look for the PC Host Server?

    How do we know if our Lan has DHCP assigned IP adresses?, If not, how do you come up with statically assigned IP addresses?

If your existing LAN has DHCP assigned IP addresses, you will be good to go. If you have statically assigned IP addresses, you will need to enter them in manually into the device. Their website has a very good instructional video on the procedures to hook up the devices. It will work with standard cat5,cat5E, or cat6 wiring.

    The easiest way would be to check one of the existing pc's to see if it is obtaining its IP address via DHCP. If it is, then your LAN is giving out IP addresses. This is usually the case, as this makes IT management of your LAN much easier for your IT dept. If it is static, you will need to get a list of useable IP addresses from your IT dept. I would assume you could use the ones from the PC's you are replacing if they are not be recycled for use elsewhere in your network.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LAN(WORKGROUP) AND NCOMPUTING. ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES.


Not sure what you mean by LAN workgroup. If you're referring to traditional Local Area Networked PCs and sharing files on a server, the NComputing solution is very different. Imagine taking a standard LAN with 20 PCs, each costing at least $500 (usually much more), and having them access a network. That cost would run you $500 * 20 or $10,000. That's just for the hardware, not any of the soft dollar costs. Additionally each PC uses a minimum of 100 Watts of Power, more common these days is 250 Watts.
Now take the NComputing solution. Start by replacing ALL 20 PCs with a $150 L230 or a $200 L300 device, which only consumes 5 Watts of power. Purchase one server, say $2,000. Load up NComputing's vSpace on the server and connect all of the L devices through the network. Every user still gets their own desktop, access to the network and other peripherals. And the I.T. department now has ONE Desktop OS touch points, not 20 as they did before. Thus the NComputing solution can reduce support costs, consume less CapEx and OpEx budget while delivering desktop sessions to each user. In this example the cost would be $2,000 + (20 * $150) = $5,000.

I have a DHG536C Cable modem from Comcast Does is have an internal router so I can use a simple Eithernet switch or hup to connect 2 computers or do I need to use an external router?


The DHG536C is a pure cable modem. You will have to purchase a router to establish a network with the two computers. Alternatively you could connect one PC to the modem and have a peer to peer LAN network between the two pcs. The PC connected to the cable modem will need to be on all the time. You will need a wireless or a LAN card for each of the 2 computers.

If you wnat to buy a separate router you can select something from this site.

What are the 2 types of connections to a router interface?


Hi there and welcome to FixYa!

To keep it simple, these are the most common 2.

LAN interfaces (local area network)

LAN in the home or office allow computers to share files, resources, and Internet connection.


WAN interfaces (wide area network)
WAN can be used for a campus or a city, such as in a citywide wireless or WiFi network.

Your routers job is choosing the best path to receive information and ship it so it can be sent out. It will basically 'forward' the information it receives to between computer networks.

One static IP has internet. how on a LAN?


Hi,

You need two network adopters in your system.
Connect Internet connection in first Network card and from the other network card give it to your Switch or hub
If you are using XP system you can use Internet connection sharing to share the internet in your LAN systems.
Follow the steps to enable using ICS

1.Enable Internet Connection sharing in the LAN properties in the first network card.
2.Now your second network card automatically get an IP address in the range of 192.168.*.* series
3.Connect other systems in the LAN and make sure the system has selected Optain IP atomatically from DHCP.

You are all set.

There is also an advanced way to setup this .
Install IPCOP firewall in a system with two network cards and u can share the internet with the firewall settings

Networking 2 computers


Yes you can make a simple Network between 2 PCs ....but ....you need what is called a "crossover ethernet cable" or "xover". A standard RJ45 ethernet cable WILL NOT work.

You also need to make sure both Pcs are in the same Workgroup and have unique computer names.... as is standard in Networking.

Connecting campus wide networking to hub


Hi,

Check the following:

Hardware First: Is Vista confirming LAN connection onn that PC, or is it showing disconnected cable?

Is the connection properties showing at least 100Mbps?
Are the RJ45 terminals okay?
Is the driver for the network card recognized by Vista and loaded?

If that is fine, then check the following in the network properties:

1. The IP address you are using
2. The gateway address: it must be the same as the gateway address in the other PCs accessing internet. Run and check
3. The Subnet mask. Use 255.255.255.0
4. HAve you Setup the Nework using the Setup Wizard, including Access INTERNET THROUGH A HUB THROUGH ANOTHER COMPUTER ON MY NETWORK?

Check those things and let us know. Ask for help from your network administrator about correct IP addresses on that LAN
