fat clients ssh into ltsp server
Thanks for your reply. I figured out the problem late last night. My
NIC's were switched and kept switching each boot. I also had them
configured incorrectly - eth0 was my internet connection and eth1 was
my local network connection. Once I switched those around, everything
worked just fine.
Also, just a note to those who might run into the same problem - my
nic's kept getting a different ethX assigned at boot. Sometimes they
were properly assigned and other times they switched. It was
maddening until I created some new udev rules (i.e., in
/etc/udev/rules.d/) with the following lines to assign the ethX by MAC
create a file called 11-local.rules
paste and edit the file according to your MAC addresses:
Everything works just fine now.
