Linux Terminal Server Project – Welcome to
The upside is that the model is easier to maintain. In the event ttuorial all clients can run the 64bit version this is recommended. This howto has been created using amd Otherwise a 32bit version Stretch i or Jessie i is suggested just make certain that everywhere this howto writes “amd64” replace it with “i”.
There is no separate chroot sometimes referred to as ltsp-pnp and the boot method is by nbd rather than nfs. A squashfs image is provided by this device.
The use of dnsmasq provides ease of configurability and maintenance. It can also be edited to run a local DNS cache on the server. Also in this model no static addresses will be used. NetworkManager will be configured to use the router’s dhcp server. At the time of writing epoptes is at version 0.
All config files need to be edited using root privileges. Now start with configurations: Once epoptes is installed one must add the server’s user in the example tutorixl to the new epoptes group. This command will do it: Otherwise these lines need to be commented out by adding the asterisk symbol as shown above and the config file is saved otherwise step 3 cannot be done.

However, the server needs to be rebooted and will render the Internet temporarily unavailable until part b of step 3 is done. So take care to copy down somewhere all of part b of step 3 and complete it so the Internet is restored. We must edit NetworkManager ‘s configuration in two places.
Choose the Wired connection and click Edit. Click on the IPv4 Settings tab. In the DNS servers field enter Save these settings and close the window.
Thus dnsmasq is the dhcp server for that subnet only. Then restart dnsmasq with the command sudo systemctl restart dnsmasq 5. The version of the kernel running on the server can be determined with the command uname -r Note that at the time of writing the kernel was 4. Once the server has been updated and any additional software has been installed a new tutoriap filesystem image must be created in order for the clients to also have tutoril updates.
Check to see if both are there. Then, create the default configuration file for the clients with the command sudo ltsp-config lts. Lastly reboot the server so that all changes are active including the user’s membership in the group epoptes.
Note that all headings written between square brackets should have at least one entry each so don’t leave any empty.
This file plays a role similar to xorg. One is worth mentioning here: If speed is important and security is less so then it is recommended. In this model note that ,tsp.
When ready to try ltsp don’t forget to create users as appropriate for the clients. This also does NOT require a re-creation of the squashfs image.
The following changes DO require a re-creation of the squashfs image: When the server is updated. Software is added to the thtorial that is desirable for clients. This means one repeats the step: If you want a complete LTSP server with all the bells and whistles: Build the LTSP client environment, downloading packages from the internet: Include the LTSP dhcpd.
This particular model has much less flexibilty since the clients must run the same version of distribution and platform as the server.
Thus a 32bit version Jessie i or Wheezy i is suggested. There is no separate chroot sometimes referred to tutprial ltsp-pnp and nbd rather than nfs is used to provide a squashfs image.
Install ltsp-server-standalone, ltsp-client since there is to be no separate chroot dnsmasq an easy to configure tool other desired software and the desktop environment of your choice. On the commandline run as root ltsp-config dnsmasq This reports: If the server will run one subnet containing the Internet connection and the clients it need have only one network interface card.

In this case dnsmasq can be configured to run a dhcp-proxy if there already is another dhcp server active. In this case edit the above file to comment out the dhcp range line and ensure there is a line uncommented stating dhcp-proxy. If the server will also run a dhcp-server then comment out the dhcp-proxy line and leave the dhcp-range line uncommented, ensuring the subnet entries are correct.
On the commandline run as root: Module overlayfs not found” it is a non-issue since aufs is used instead of overlayfs. This may not run well on some older graphic cards. Debian Wheezy, on the other hand, has the 1. Hosting provided by Metropolitan Area Network Darmstadt.
