You could possibly reboot the the thin clients via ssh,into your
k12linux server ONLY if you had entered/added the line 'ALLOW_SHUTDOWN =
Y' to your lts.conf file.The TC's have to be manually restarted by their
'power button' one time for this setting to take effect,so I think you
are out of luck remotely rebooting the TC's even ssh'd into your
k12linux server.
Opps, just thought ,You are on FC10/ltsp5 which has deprecated this
piece. There are a couple shell scripts people have made to remotely
reboot TC's from the server login,but there are several steps to make
this happen such as 'rebuilding the ltsp tree and adding ssh-keys to the
ltsp tree.
If you do as stated in the first post in regards to iptables default
settings via Webmin the TC's should boot no probs. For 'added on'
services you may have to allow some ports to the default settings.
Without even getting this far,make sure you disable iptables all
together, initially to make sure the TC's will boot to verify,you have
everything working at this point.
As stated, make sure your nics are started correctly. Do an:
' ifconfig' to see what you are seeing for ip readings all the way
Are you 100 percent sure you do not have another dhcp server running on
your network that the TC's are plugged into? Voice of experience talking
here again.
Let us know your progress.

Take Care,
