even the support dudes at godaddy,who reallly is a nice guy, cant figure out whats wrong
]iptabkes starts up auto
even when switched off
u think uninstalling iptables could be detrimental if all I'm running is webservers?
u know I'm about 20 secs away from moving servers]
this is now ludicrous... 5 days wihtout web access

Is someone out there possibly able to help me with a few questions I have about LTSP? I'm in the last stages of a project and I can't seem to find any info on the couple issues I'm having.
alkisg: ask: (#1) Don't ask to ask a question, simply ask it, and if someone knows the answer, they'll respond. Please hang around for at least 15 minutes after asking a question, as not everybody constantly monitors the channel., or (#2) Please do not ask to ask a question, just go ahead and ask. People will respond if they have a solution or can help.

Right - My system, Ubuntu (10.10) But will use later versions. LTSP, KVM/QEMU all properly setup. VM's running. The goal, booting directly into my windows VM via LTSP thin clients.
ok.... my anger level from 0-10 is at about 7 and a half
so please bear with me
I need a new hosting provider
When I edit lts.conf, to boot into RDP using screen_07 = rdesktop
It has taken godaddy longer than 2 weeks to sort out a simple web issue
It boots into a black server with white cursor that's moveable.
What's the problem?
*edit for my above note, HOW do I boot into my VM using the RDP option in lts.conf - will this ONLY work for Windows Terminal servers? Alternatively, HOW can I get Rdesktop to PROPERLY boot at startup of an LTSP thin client, I don't want the user to see a Ubuntu Desktop environment at all.
Setting SCREEN_07=rdesktop <params> or specifying RDP_OPTIONS and maybe RDP_SERVER should be enough
In theory, should this successfully boot into the VM?
If it isn't, and you suspect something else is wrong, you can troubleshoot from a local xterm
VM is ltsp client or windows server?
VM=windows server, and you want a physical client to connect there?
Sure, should be easy
LTSP client connecting to windows 7 VM.
When adding this into lts.conf I get a black screen at boot with moveable white cursor.
What's the ip of the vm server?
What's the ip of the ltsp server?
Did you set RDP_SERVER?
RDP_SERVER = The server running the VM? Or the VM itself?
The ip where rdesktop should connect
Where in port 3389 rdp server is listening
Ok yes, that's the IP of the VM itself.
The VM is hosted in the LTSP server, (several VM's)
They connect back via rdesktop
godaddy is hillbilies hosting]
so i've found
Basically I've got this in lts.conf (and now getting black screen with white cursor)
screen_07 = rdesktop
rdp_server = "192.168.1.71" (windows 7 VM on LTSP server)
What am I missing?
When booted up properly (into gnome) running terminal and the regular Rdesktop args it boots into the VM without an issue.
Alex_____: remove the screen_07=rdesktop entry, and boot normally into LDM, login into gnome, run `ltsp-localapps xterm` so that you get a local terminal, and finally try manually connecting from there with rdesktop
I've currently got a script delaying Rdesktop at boot for 2 seconds to give Gnome a chance to load, then this boots flawlessly into the VM. But this isn't ideal, as the user sees a flash of gnome.
Can you put your lts.conf to pastebin?
Sorry - when I DONT use lts.conf
When I boot into regular ldm/gnome. Then I get a script to launch Rdesktop at boot.
Can't paste lts.conf at this stage (on my mac)
What I want to achieve, is to not have to use a startup script to launch rdesktop and have ltsp handle this using lts.conf
(like screen_07 etc etc)
I know Rdesktop works - as I can launch it fine in the terminal once logged onto gnome.
OK, do what I said above with `ltsp-localapps xterm`
If this works?
If it works paste your lts.conf as it's just a syntax issue
Will you be around at some other time today?
I may be around for a couple more hours
Ok - damn, (I'm at work) I'll have to try this when I'm back in front of the server.
I can write up what's in the lts.conf as it's a basic file just to get this going at the moment.
I suspect xterm will work. One thought I had, could it be possible that this will only work with windows terminal servers? The VM is just a windows 7 VM, not a server.
|18:23||komunista has joined IRC (email@example.com)|
That's it. Except I've also added this to a specific thin client (mac address)
Just to get this damn thing going. With this all I'm getting is the aforementioned black screen with white cursor.
All the LTSP articles online (and trust me, I've read ALL of them) constantly mention Windows Terminal servers.
Which is where I'm not 100% sure if this option will work for a regular Windows 7 VM.
Also, thank you for your help so far. I really appreciate it.
(09:21:06 μμ) Alex_____: I suspect xterm will work. One thought I had, could it be possible that this will only work with windows terminal servers ==> rdesktop works on any version of windows as long as it has rdp enabled
So I'm just missing something?
Yes, when you're onsite start troubleshooting with the local xterm
E.g. in 10.04 the rdesktop.sh was missing, maybe that affects 10.10 too
I see. Rdesktop does seem to work well once in terminal. etc etc.
I did attempt this on 11.04 also,
But same issue. I also noted, that the ltsplocal-apps command doesn't work for Rdesktop. I assumed that this is because it's integrated into LTSP and launches locally by default.

A "local terminal" is completely different from a "gnome terminal"
Ok. I'll be sure to try this when I
get in front of the server.
If it works and I connect, what's the next step? Likewise, if it doesn't work, what could be the issues?
IRC usually is helpful for troubleshooting specific issues
For general questions, there's the ubuntu ltsp wiki
You could read some cases that can go wrong there
There's also the irclogs in the topic and the ltsp mailing list
You can find 100 things that can go wrong there, if you want to look for what could be wrong
Fair enough, sorry :)
I came here because to be honest, I'm at my wits end with this thing. I've been at it forever. I'm just happy to have a new lead to follow.
One example is "rdesktop.sh missing"

Another is "no routing from your thin client to the vm server"
Lots of possible issues, it would take hours to cover all the "what if"s
