Fog Projext wont work over tftp


i've tryed to make an offline PXEServer with Fog, i ran the default fog installer, from v0.32, and setted up a fog dhcp server, with dhcp3, however the tftp server seems to fail.

when i do
#tftp localhost

and get pxelinux.0

i get the file..

however when i try to fetch it from the network, it says file not found..

when i run the PXE client from a network computer, it says the pxelinux.0 was not found either.. whats wrong wit hthe tftp server?

But does the dhcp server send it as part of the boot options?

well sometimes i get the File Not Found error, and sometimes it work.. depends on how many times i try and reboot it.. seems the PXE Client have a very hard time getting the file...

i ran a reboot 10 time, to force it to download the fog client from the server... when i look at the DHCP, it both gotten the ip and filename to get and the next-server to get it from..

so thats why i think the error may be in the tftp server.. or maby the xinit daemon, as it may be responding to slow or something?

Did you check your dhcp server options?

i found the problem. seems when you install fog in Ubuntu Desktop environment, it set the system up for single connections, so if just a little data gets transfeared from 1, noone else can connect..

i corrected this, by installing ubuntu server environment, as it seems to work perfectly now
