Re: [K12OSN] K12LTSP server won't give non-terminals web access



I tried pinging from a windows workstation and was
able to ping using the dns hostname. I even tried a
hostname which I'm shure I have never visited with
that computer and it worked. When I try to browse I
get an "Invalid Request" error and then something
about some aspect of the HTTP request being invalid.

I have a standard setup of K12LTSP with the LTSP box
connected to the internet on eth1 and the local
network on eth0. The server provides dhcp to the
internal network and routing for any workstations I
hook to the internal network so they have full access
to the outside world. I want to be able to bring in a
laptop, forexample, and hook it in, let dhcp assign
the IP and such and let the computer browse the net.

I followed what Eric suggested below but it still
doesn't work.

Any other ideas or do you know of a generic set of
config files I could compare mine to?

Thank you.
