terminal-server-1.5-7mdk RPM for noarch

From Mandriva 9.1 for i586 / Mandrake / RPMS

Name: terminal-server Distribution: Mandrake Linux
Version: 1.5 Vendor: MandrakeSoft
Release: 7mdk Build date: Mon Dec 30 18:42:58 2002

Size: 20634 Source RPM: terminal-server-1.5-7mdk.src.rpm
Packager: Stew Benedict <>
Summary: Terminal Server
This package includes the files necessary in order to provide terminal
server functionality for diskless workstations on your network.

There are security implications to installing this package.
Specifically, it will make your entire filesystem accessible to any
station on the network.  Network stations will have the privilege level of
an anonymous user (via the all_squash nfs option), so this is not a major
security risk.  Network booting may not function correctly (or at all) if
certain key parts of your filesystem are not world-readable.

A first pass at a Mandrake configuration tool, drakTermServ can be found in
drakxtools.  Initially it is capable of setting up/start/stopping the server,
creating etherboot floppy disks and isos, creating kernel net boot images for
client machines, maintaining client user and machine lists, and configuring
the dhcpd and clusternfs servers.

A fairly generic vesa XFree86Config-4$$CLIENT$$ is included for the client

Basic cdrom/floppy mount points are also included, but you'll probably want
to assign these per client machine.

Future drakTermServ plans include managing custom client files.

This package is based on work by Michael Brown <>,
with minor modifications for inclusion in Mandrake Linux.
