Helenah: which network file system is the server using, e.g. cifs, nfs, sshfs?
And what about authentication, do users have accounts/passwords there, or is it just one password for the administrator?
In general you should be able to replace pamltsp with pammount, and authenticate directly to the home server. Or just install ssh to the home server :)
And tell pamltsp to connect there instead of to the ltsp server...

alkisg, It would be CIFS, I'm just thinking what the best solution is out of the ones that you've mentioned, oh and sorry for my delayed response by the way. I know this is IRC but I still like to ensure people get a response plus it helps with support if it's all done within the same day.
having pamltsp connect to the storage server sounds nice seems as the storage server has SSH and the LTSP server is already using pamltsp
Okay just looking into panltsp :3
alkisg, I'm assuming it's used for things like credentials and home directories.
I know that's the purpose of PAM itself, but pamltsp, if the name of it is self explanatory is doing the same thing in a way suitable for LTSP.

Helenah: do these users have usernames and passwords on the cifs server?
If so, you can just set SSH_SERVER=that-ip in ltsp.conf
Then the images will boot from ltsp-server, but home will come from SSH_SERVER
*the ltsp clients will get the image from the ltsp-server, but home will come from SSH_SERVER
There is also... /home/user/Common
Where shared stuff is put
But maybe I can link the common directories together
That's not a problem. pamltsp mounts user@server:
That : means "the default user directory"
It doesn't set a path; so it can be defined on the server without changing anything in ltsp.conf
So if you ssh user@server, and run pwd, and you're in /home/user/Common, all is fine
