    Description

    I have just installed fog successfully however as we are unable to change settings on our DHCP server we need to use dnsmasq to redirect PXE boot requests. I have installed dnsmasq and created an ltsp.conf file, however when I PXE boot a computer it just goes through to the original PXE boot server (as setup in the windows DHCP server), dnsmasq does not appear to be working at all. In the Wiki it mentions about a possible conflict with dnsmasq-base and says to remove a line in the NetworkManager.conf file, however that file does not exist on my install.

    Any ideas what I can check/change on my system to get dnsmasq up and running correctly.

    Thanks

    The problem is your Windows DHCP server is already handing out Boot info.

    Your client sees this info and tries to boot from it immediatly.

    ProxyDHCP can only step in and help out if the Network boot info isn’t passed on yet.
