Default Local apps and nat

I've followed the instructions for installing firefox and flash as local apps for 9.10.* Firefox launches and is running locally (e.g. it has the on ltsp20)* However, I sure I have nat set up properly.* I use a 2 NIC setup so I started following: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSPKarmicLocalAppsFirefox (note that installing flashplugin-installer from apt fails.* Instead, I downloaded the libflashplayer.so and copied it to the plugins directory, then created a link from fire-addons)*

Next I followed: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/ThinClientHowtoNAT ...

The step that concerns me is setting 'option routers;'* since the dhcpd.file already has '*** option routers;' ... my final dhcpd.conf file is below.* Since eth1 is defined in /etc/network/interfaces as

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet static
*** address
*** netmask
*** network
*** broadcast
*** up iptables-restore < /etc/ltsp/nat

I'm assuming that the 'options routers;' isn't valid and actually prevents any routing from occurring by accident?

I still have to install totem and the other plugins for firefox. I thought when the image was built that it was based off of the server's image, but that doesn't seem to necessarily be true for the plugins.

Finally, I also have an issue with local devices from all thin clients showing up for all users ... nothing like having 32 floppy devices automagically appearing on everyone's logins but there seems to be some discussion of this as well.* That is next.

My dhcpd.conf file

# Default LTSP dhcpd.conf config file.


subnet netmask {
*** range;

*** option domain-name "example.com";
*** option domain-name-servers;
*** option broadcast-address;
#*** option routers;
*** option routers;

#*** next-server;
#*** get-lease-hostnames true;
*** option subnet-mask;
*** option root-path "/opt/ltsp/i386";
*** if substring( option vendor-class-identifier, 0, 9 ) = "PXEClient" {

******* filename "/ltsp/i386/pxelinux.0";
*** } else {
******* filename "/ltsp/i386/nbi.img";
*** }
