Hi Brad,

Thanks for your advice.

Noted with thanks

Should I understand your advice correctly.  The *remote* thin client
needs a server at *remote* location to connect to the K12LTSP via the
server.  What will be the basic requirement of the server, both hardware
and software

To make thing more clear I put up following examples

1) A student only has a Win machine at home which can be connected to
Internet via broadband or 56K modem


2) A student only has a thin client (diskless workstation) at home

How can they connect K12LTSP at school?  What additional software and/or
hardware they need to add?

Thanks in advance.
