Re: Problem handling thin clients' "subnet" within GOsa (was: Re: DNS for the thin client network should be handlet by Gosa)



Hi Andi,

What happens if I ask for the ltspserver's thin-client interface

Maybe your problem does not need to be handled in DNS...

If an ltspserver has two IPs... say...

  o 192.168.0.254
  o 10.0.2.XX

... Can thinclients in 192.168.0.0/24 ping the ltspserver's 10.0.2.XX IP address? If thinclients have a default route (i.e. route add default gw 192.168.0.254), they should be able to ping the other interface's IP in the ltspserver.

The only caveat I can think of: I am not sure, if the cross-NIC pinging works without /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward enabled in the kernel which we should definitely avoid on LTSP Servers).

Thus, if thinclients can reach the LTSP Server's external 10.0.2.XX-IP then you do not have to fiddle the LTSP Server's internal IP into GOsa². Just use the IP of the 10.0.2.XX-NIC in DNS.

Otherwise: how problematic is it introducing sub.intern domains into LTSP subnets of Skolelinux?

Greets,
Mike
