Abstract

Remote booting is a concept to boot a machine over a network from a centralized boot- server. The Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP) is a bundle of packages for Linux that allows many people to simultaneously use the same computer. The server, running the dhcpd d\u00e6mon, has allocated a range of IP addresses for mobile nodes and simply assigns the next IP address in the range to the broadcasting node. DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)also manages the longevity of the IP-address assignment via a DHCP leases file.

The remote computer need not have a hard drive, floppy, CD-ROM or permanent storage media . It need only its network card (NIC) with a boot PROM that support PXE(prebooting Execution Environment) in order to boot and run a remotely loaded operating system. The Linux OS uses TFTP to upload/download the boot image. Trivial file transfer protocol ((TFTP) uses port 69 and is similar to FTP, but more compact and requires no login. TFTP uses the UDP protocol to keep it small for use by diskless workstations. The rdesktop package is an application that opens RDP Session with a Windows Server and by doing it , the Linux station become a Windows Terminal Client.

1.Objective
To setup few thin-clients machines having Microsoft Windows operating system using
LTSP(Linux Terminal Server Project) packages.
2.Reason for the project

The major motivations to develop such a network are , to setup cost effective diskless windows machines with centralized file system, administrative supports, share software resources with single installation, and moreover to know the working of thin-clients and supporting network protocols etc.

3.Requirements
Atleast three PCs are required to set up Windows thin clients
1.PII or Celeron machine with 64 MB RAM, and a network card that has a PXE boot ROM as
client
2. Two servers ,one running as Windows 2000/2003 Server and the other running Fedora
Core Linux
3. Network Switch to connect the systems
4.Installation
Installing the LTSP Server
First install the LTSP Server on the Fedora Core Linux box and then configure it for booting with
DHCP. Finally, add the required drivers.
