Re: [K12OSN] K12LTSP from a remote site

You want to centralize as many services as you can but you are going to at least want separate LTSP servers at each site since the X traffic will use a lot of bandwidth at a good res and color setting. Your login and email/web/proxy should be easy to centralize. The bandwidth between the sites and the frequency that people visit both schools will determine whether home folders are centrally shared, separate, or separated but synced over the network.

First, what is your connection speed at each of these sites.

I am totally new to the LTSP, but not new to Linux, so I may have totally invalid answers ;)

BUT, if the DHCP doesn't automatically travel the IPSEC, then you could just put a basic LTSP server there at the new school, but in the servers section of the lts.config, just point everything to the more powerful machine.

Set SERVERS and anything else to point to the beastie computer at your current location.

So what do you think?

Bandwidth might kill this still though.

setup a more powerful server to setup here were I am usually at and feed
K12LTSP to the remote building so as the new server can be sitting
"locally" were i am at in the server room  to be able to setup more
clients in the building "up the road".
What kind of show stopper stuff am i going to run in to,with this scenario?
Is there any chance of this actually working with DHCP, TFTP, going
through the Ipsec tunnel? IF i can telnet back and forth say port 67 and others wouldnt this work? I am thinking if this does work of running the
new server DHCP on port 1067 so only this server will feed the remote
clients as well as keeping the Windows dhcp server as it is at remote
Im sure this will be a head scratcher at least if it would ever work.
Will bandwidth/latency be the death of this?
