Fog on a Isolated Network



  • Hey,

    So I wanted to setup my FOG Server on a Isolated Network as said in “https://wiki.fogproject.org/wiki/index.php/FOG_on_an_Isolated_Network”. When I followed those directions, I would get to the point where I finish the install and I can access the FOG Web Management GUI, however once i disconnect from the internet it can no longer access the Web GUI. I was wondering why that is and how would I be able to set up the FOG Server so that I can image over a switch to multiple client machines and the FOG Server would also act as the DHCP Server. I would like to do this without being connected to internet at all if possible. Thank You



  • @wayne-workma Thank you very much for your help, your first question helped me. I never moved the client machine over to the switch, I just ran the FOG Server alone on the switch, once I moved to client over to the switch, the FOG Management was to run and work properly.

    when I move over and plug the server into the switch and reload the web interface, it says it cannot communicate with that server.

    Dumb questions but they need asked, please answer each one.

    • When you move the server to that other switch, are you moving your workstation/laptop to that other switch too? So that it can talk to the server?
    • Can you successfully ping the FOG Server from your workstation once on the isolated network?
    • Can you successfully SSH into the FOG Server from your workstation once on the isolated network?
    • Status of the apache service on your server. debian/ubuntu would be systemctl status apache2 -l and centos/rhel/fedora would be systemctl status httpd -l
    • On the server via CLI, what is the output of this command: curl http://localhost/fog/managemement and curl http://127.0.0.1/fog/managemement


  • No the IP Address never changed from when I installed the FOG Server.



  • @dseecharran22 Is the static IP you’ve set different than the IP it had when you ran the installer? In other words, did the IP ever change?



  • Yes I set the IP address statically when I moved it over to the switch but when I move over and plug the server into the switch and reload the web interface, it says it cannot communicate with that server.

    Simply not having internet access does not break the web GUI. Other things are happening to cause this. Are you setting a static IP address when you move it to the isolated network?
