Can someone fill in the steps here?  I'm using Edubuntu so my
configuration is likely different.

My *Edubuntu* server uses eth1 for connecting to the local LAN and
uses dhcpd.  So in my /etc/network/interfaces I have:

    auto eth1

And then on Ubuntu NetworkManager handles connecting via dhcp client.

On Debian I have:

    auto eth1
    iface eth1 inet dhcp



My eth0 is what connects to my switch and to the clients.

    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
        address 192.168.0.254
        netmask 255.255.255.0
        network 192.168.0.0
        broadcast 192.168.0.255
        # Enable NAT for non-thin clients.
        up iptables-restore < /etc/ltsp/nat.conf

Now, since I'm running dhcpd on the LTSP server I only want it to
listen on eth0, not eth1 which would conflict with the LAN's dhcpd.

On Ubuntu in /etc/default/dhcp3-server I have:

    INTERFACES="eth0"


And finally, to allow the ltsp clients (or any computer that connects
to the ltsp switch) to use access the LAN (and thus the Internet) I
have have /etc/ltsp/nat.conf:

    # Generated by iptables-save v1.3.6 on Sun Nov  4 10:38:59 2007
    *nat
    :PREROUTING ACCEPT [5:565]
    :POSTROUTING ACCEPT [2:504]
    :OUTPUT ACCEPT [2:504]
    -A POSTROUTING -s 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 -j MASQUERADE 
    COMMIT
    # Completed on Sun Nov  4 10:38:59 2007

Which would be similar to the "static" setting above.
