<sbalneav>
Morning all
15:00cdshan has joined IRC (cdshan!75ce6eeb@gateway/web/freenode/ip.117.206.110.235)
15:03
<cdshan>
hello everyone! I have installed ltsp5 on ubuntu 12.04, we use endian firewall community edition. We have configured to firewall to give direct access to the internet with out proxy. We would like the ltsp clients to go through the proxy for content filtering.
15:04
but what is happening is that the traffic from the client is recoganised as traffic from the server and the content filtering is not happening.
15:04
could some one help me on this.
15:05
I have only one network interface card
15:19
<sbalneav>
How's that an LTSP issue?
15:20
You'll just have to set up all the userids that run on LTSP clients to go through the proxy.
15:21
<cdshan>
I have done that, but if they remove the proxy setting in their browser, they will be able to access the internet directly as we had given access direct access to the server
15:22
<sbalneav>
Yes.
15:22
Because they're running on the server.
15:22
<cdshan>
When I view the log in the proxy server it shows the ip address of the server and not that of the clients
15:22
that is the problem
15:23
<sbalneav>
Correct.
15:23
Because they're running on the server.
15:23
You're running them as thin clients, and not fat clients, right?
15:24
So all their processes are running on the server itself, and simply displaying on the thin client.
15:24
So, you have 2 options:
15:24
1) Run them as fat clients
15:24
2) Simply proxy everything.
15:25
Personally, I'd go with 2
15:25
<cdshan>
my question is when each of the thin clients are getting an individual ip address, when they access the internet shouldn't the ip address of the individual thin clients appear in the log instead of the ltsp server ip address
15:26
<sbalneav>
No, not at all.
15:26
<cdshan>
ltsp server would only be kind of NATing the traffic right?
15:26
<sbalneav>
Because the thin clients are just being used as display devices.
15:26
When you run firefox, it's not running ON the thin client, unless you've configured them as fat clients.
15:26
Rather, the firefox process itself is running on the server.
15:27
Any traffic the firefox process initiates will be coming from the server, since that's where the process is actually running.
15:27
<cdshan>
would this be resolved if we run firefox as a local application?
15:27
on the thin client?
15:28
<sbalneav>
It would, but there are always issues with running an individual application locally
15:28
<cdshan>
so you dont advice that I run firefox as a local app.
15:29
<sbalneav>
It's certainly worth trying.
15:29
But why not simply proxy everything from that server?
15:29
<cdshan>
Suppose I add another ethernet card and give access to internet to the server through that and keep the client side connected to another card would that work?
15:30
you mean to say apply proxy setting system wide?
15:30
<sbalneav>
Yes.
15:30
Apply proxy settings systems wide.
15:30
That would be the easiest, yes?
15:30
<cdshan>
I will try that!
15:31
thank you for the response.
