TFTP boot problems in Gusty AMD64
 
Hi,

I run ltsp in a bussiness environment. I have LTSP installed (Ubuntu Feisty) in a i386 (server & client) environment. Now I am setting up a new server that is AMD64 but the thin clients are i386.

I set up two static interfaces one 192.168.1.x for the lan side and one 192.168.0.1 for the LTSP side.


I installed LTSP server sudo apt-get install ltsp-server-standalone openssh-server
then I built the environment sudo ltsp-build-client --arch i386. Then I updated the kernels sudo ltsp-update-kernels and then rebooted.



When I try to connect from the i386 client (anyone), the client gets its address from dhcp (and is confirmed in Syslog) but TFTP just hangs. I get TFTP........ and it just times out. Any ideas on what is wrong?
I also tried wiping* the contents of /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp and trying the sudo ltsp-update-kernels command again with the same results. Below is my dhcpd.conf



#
# Default LTSP dhcpd.conf config file.
#

authoritative;

subnet 192.168.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {

*** range 192.168.0.20 192.168.0.250;

*** option domain-name "example.com";
*** option domain-name-servers 192.168.0.1;
*** option broadcast-address 192.168.0.255;


*** option routers 192.168.0.1;
#*** next-server 192.168.0.254;
#*** get-lease-hostnames true;
*** option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;


*** 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";


*** }
}

Thank you for any assistance.

Regards,

Paul Thompson
