Re: [K12OSN] Re: [Ltsp-discuss] Query unsovled

We have a small lab that includes Lego Mindstorms robots. The robots use IR transmitters to communicate with the robots. We found it was 'easier' to have one transmitter for all the terminals, just one transmitter cut down on problems with loading the wrong robot.

That worked partly because all the computers were in one room.

What remote control equipment are you using?

Is your personal workstation running Linux ? If so, simply install the


remote-control-equipment and configure it on the LTSP Server, and your job is done. To run the remote-control-equipment from your workstation, simply SSH to the server. If you would like it to be a single-click, then write a little script that does the ssh command for you, and put a link to it on your desktop.

The Terminals will run the Application as if it /was/ on their Terminal..

Yeah, but I'd like to be able to move the controler-box to the ws of
the user. There isn't much use for a IR comunication-link to the toy,
if you have to go to another building to get it programmed. If the
kids on the other hand could take the transmitter to thier own ws,
that would be the best solution.

... and no other terminals can access it either.

Right, but if a nother kid wanted to play with it, he/she should go
and fetch the transmitter and plug it into his own ws.

Put everything on the Server, or add another Linux box to ssh to.

Might be a solution to. Thanx for the tip.
