<Guest95132>
Hello?
16:36
I have a 64 bit LinuxMint box with a static IP an ltsp-server-standalone installed
16:36
I ran ltsp-build-client
16:37
Attempting PXE boot. I can't seem to get any client to boot. How does the client know the IP of the server?

<quinox1>
DHCP
16:42
in a standard setup the server will also do DHCP for the clients, and tell them where to boot from via PXE
16:43
if you want to use/keep your own DHCP server: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ProxyDHCP
16:48
<||cw>
there's also an lts.conf to override the server name or IP

<ltsp>
Guest95132: ltsp-manager: LTSP Manager is a GUI tool that makes LTSP maintenance easy. It's the recommended way to install LTSP in common setups. More info: http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Ltsp-manager
16:50
<alkisg>
This is the recommended way to install ltsp ^

<Guest95132>
Can I connect via a regular Linux box if I know the IP (and not using PXE boot)?
17:14
<||cw>
you should be able to ssh, yes
17:15
<Guest95132>
I can ssh in.
17:16
I can ssh -X to run programs remotely too. But I was hoping to get a remote desktop.
17:17
<alkisg>
Guest95132: check x2go if you want remote desktop instead of remote boot
17:19
<||cw>
Guest95132: ltsp is mostly about booting diskless client devices, which can have programs running on the server with a remote display on the client, or the program running on the client and only the storage is the server. it's not really a remote desktop either way
17:19
very much unlike windows/citrix thin clients
17:20
in fact my main use case for ltsp is diskless booting to run xfreerdp on the client to connect to windows terminal server or windows VDI virtual machines
17:22* alkisg prefers to run that as "windows virtualbox images in ltsp fat clients", waaay faster than xfreerdp
17:23
<quinox1>
I have harddrives in my LTSP clients which serve virtualbox images, performance is like you booted Windows

alkisg: if the client is fast enough, some of mine are early P4. I'll also go native once this internal app doesn't require IE
