Dr. Sameer,

I had my Edubuntu server and clients all set up and working beautifully except I also had the problem that the PCs could not get out to the Internet when they were booted up in Windows.

You say this can be resolved by setting up port-forwarding on the Edubuntu server ???  If I can get this to work that would be great !

Can you please tell me where to find info on how to do this ?

We did an install of Edubuntu 7.04 a few days ago. The clients PXEboot 
without any setup. When I boot the clients into Windows XP, I get 
addresses, but the internal NIC on the server does not forward to the 
external NIC. You'll have to do that by setting up forwarding on the 
server. When the clients boot up in PXEBoot mode, the apps all run off 
the server, so routing to the outside is not a problem.

Hope this helps.
