[K12OSN] Re: Thinner LTSP



Hi,
I've been running the LTSP for ages now and it used to run on a 10Mb network. However.... depends on how its set up. 1)Local application processing helps 2)don't use stupidly high screen res 3)use lower colour depth 4)limit the number of clients of the network or segment the network it put 3 or 4 network cards in the server and run a proportion of the total number of clients on each NIC. I used to do it this way buy it was still slower than a 100Mb network. You can get cheap switched from www.dabs.com and cable (350 meters of) cat 5 cable for like £80. P.S. can you send your emails to the list in raw text please as we all get teh code for your HTML emails (sory to be a pain) [see bottom of this email. I am very experienced in the K12LTSP (www.k12ltsp.org) well worth a look its GREAT! The thinnest ver of the LTSP is when its set up to run over telnet and with out a gui. On 10Mb it runs no different from 100Mb as yay its a telletype :> and 1200 baud works fine and 9600 is grea!
t (my mainframe uses 9600baud). 
Well hope this helps.
if not feel free to email me for more info
Regards
Khalid

Is there any other "thinner" version of LTSP?
Is someone ever going to make one?

>From what I've been reading it seems as if a 10mb network wont be much =
good for ltsp.

Is this correct? is there a way of reducing the bandwidth required?
