markit: depends on the lab. On some labs it works. On some it crashes after a couple of hours. On some it crashes in the first few seconds.
10:42
It does work with fat clients if you copy the keys to the chroot.

Port 69 is for tftp, not for telnet

22:46
any soution\

22:48
<viks_>
alkisg : tell me how to solve this problem
22:48
<alkisg>
viks_, I don't know your problem
22:48
I just saw you saying about telnet on port 69
22:49
Which is the tftp port
22:49
If you want to troubleshoot tftp, here's a page that might help you: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/Troubleshooting/TFTP
22:50
<viks_>
actually when client is booting through pxe in kiosk mode ........it is showing tftp timed out....and he is not getting firefox
22:50
so i tried with telneting the ltsp server with telnet ipaddress 69....but it was not getting telneting
22:51
<alkisg>
If the client is getting tftp timeout, then yes you have a tftp problem. See the page I wrote above for help.
22:52
<viks_>
yes i tried with firest command sudo status tftpd-hpa ...it is showing status: Unknown job: tftpd-hpa.....do i need to install anything
22:53
<alkisg>
ltsp
22:53
If you don't have ltsp, then you're on the wrong channel
22:53
Which distribution are you using, and which version of it?
22:54
<viks_>
ubuntu 9.04
22:54
<alkisg>
Do you have ltsp installed?
22:55
<viks_>
yes
22:55
<alkisg>
Is it really ubuntu 9.04?
22:55
<viks_>
s
22:55
<alkisg>
Or is it 10.04?
22:55
<viks_>
yes
22:55
no it is 9.04
22:56
tell me y client is getting tftp timed out error
22:56
<alkisg>
Please don't use single letters as words
22:56
I don't understand them
22:56
netstat -nap | grep :69
22:56
What does this command return?
22:57
(on your server)
22:57
<viks_>
udp6 0 0 :::69 :::*
22:57
2890/xinetd
22:58
<alkisg>
So the problem is that you're using xinetd instead of inetd, which is the ltsp default
22:58
Also, why are you using the unsupported 9.04 instead of e.g. 10.04?
22:59
<viks_>
because there is a some problem with ltsp coniguration so i am trying for 9.04 then i will go with 10.04
23:00
so tell me how can i solve this problem
23:00
<alkisg>
Why did you install xinetd?
23:01
<viks_>
actually i searched for how to enable port 69...then i follow the step ....tell me do i need to uninstall it
23:01
<alkisg>
Yes, undo all the steps that you followed so that you have a clean ltsp installation
23:02
If it's your first try, it might be easier to reinstall, it only takes 20 minutes to install ubuntu/ltsp from the alternate cd
23:04
<viks_>
i removed xinetd ...tell me what i do now
23:04
<alkisg>
viks_: for tftp to stop working, you messed up your setup manually
23:04
You need to undo all the steps that you did to make it stop working
23:05
It might be easier to reinstall ubuntu/ltsp
23:05
<viks_>
no actually it is working here in my block.....but when i try from other VLAN it is not working showing tftp timed out
23:05
that is the main problem
23:06
<alkisg>
If it's working on one VLAN and not on another, then it's not an LTSP problem, and you should mention that from the start
23:06
Check with your local network administrator
23:06
<viks_>
what i need to check exactly
23:06
<alkisg>
To tell him that tftp is not working
23:07
If your network administrator needs support for vlans etc, maybe he could try the #networking channel
23:07
But vlans are not an ltsp problem, this is not the correct channel for that
23:07
<viks_>
actually i asked them regarding this they said from thier side all ports are open ......i need to check from my side
23:08
#networking
23:08
<alkisg>
You just said that your side is working
23:08
<viks_>
ya my side it is working perfect
23:08
<alkisg>
Right, so tell them that
23:08
<viks_>
and one more thing m trying this in kiosk mode
23:09
and user will be getting firefox
23:09
right but i want local hardisk to be detect where client boot
23:09
but it is not getting detected
23:09
is there any solution for that
23:09
<alkisg>
You want a customized ltsp setup
23:10
<viks_>
tell me where exactlly i can set
23:10
<alkisg>
I told you of one method some days ago, but you didn't answer for hours
23:10
So personally I don't want to try helping on that again
23:10
<vagrantc>
viks_: it seems like you have a lot to learn about the basics before doing major customizations...
23:11
viks_: what you are asking is not a feature you can simply enable or disable.
23:12
<viks_>
but there may be some file i remember lts.conf where i can set something.....
23:12
<vagrantc>
viks_: i would really recommend trying thin clients first...
23:13
<viks_>
no actually our requirement is we are using some virtual desktop kind of thing....from there we are getting windows desktop....k ..
23:14
and if i access that desktop from firefox on the system where os installed ...it is showing local disk
23:14
but we don't want os on client side
23:14
<vagrantc>
viks_: i am not saying use thin clients, but i am saying learn how LTSP works with the defaults before you try EXTREMELY COMPLICATED THINGS
23:15
learn to walk before you try to run or fly.
23:15
<alkisg>
viks_, it seems to me that you need some extensive customizations, and you lack the knowledge to do it. Maybe you could consider hiring a professional to help you. There are many companies that do such staff.
23:34
<viks_>
k
23:35
but let me know one thing ....if i use ltsp boot without kiosk mode
23:35
and if want that user will get only firefox instead of ll applications
23:35
can i do that
23:36
alkisg : can i do that
23:39
<alkisg>
viks_: yes, you can do that
23:40
<viks_>
tell me how can i do that
23:40
<alkisg>
Haha
23:41
OK. Honest. Do you expect someone here to take 2-3 hours to customize ltsp for you?
23:41
You either need to learn enough about ltsp to customize it yourself, or you need to contact some company that can do it for you.
23:42
<viks_>
k
23:42
<alkisg>
It's another thing to ask for some hints on an irc channel, and another to ask them to do your work for you
23:44tallis_ (~apostolos@adsluser1059.thess.sch.gr) joined #ltsp.
23:50
<viks_>
no dear , m just asking ....if there some documentation so that i can do myself
23:54
<alkisg>
Documentation about how to make LTSP boot without the kiosk mode but customize it so that the users only get firefox? No, I don't think anyone has written documentation for that.
23:55
<viks_>
k then i will try it and i will write for the same
