Moving to an isolated network - Best approach



  • After many hours of trying to configure and get running an isolated network, I setup Fog .032 and Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit (Desktop) on my network.
    The settings I used were:
    Here are the settings FOG will use:
    Distro: Ubuntu
    Installation Type: Normal Server
    Server IP Address: 192.168.127.181
    DHCP router Address: 192.168.127.1
    DHCP DNS Address:
    Interface: eth0
    Using FOG DHCP: 1
    Internationalization: 0
    I was able to recognize and image a drive.

    Now the opportunity. I am looking to image about 85 (23 at a time) Dell 6500/6510 laptops with the same syspreped Win 7 image.
    I would like to move to an isolated network. Just the FOG server and the network hub with the computers connected to the hub.

    [B]First off, am I missing any hardware?[/B]
    [B]How do I move my system to an isolated network?[/B]
    [B]Can I still use the image that I captured to multicast after the move? Assuming I am successful…[/B]

    Any feedback is appreciated. ;)



  • I went into VPN Connections and deleted the existing wired network.
    I then entered an IP address that matched the network version
    192.168.127.181, 255.255.255.0, 192.168.127.1
    I did not set up a DNS entry.

    The computer after a reboot found 192.168.127.177 as an IP address after reviewing the connection settings. I could not access the Fog system at all.



  • How did you try to create a static IP? Can you talk us through what you did so that we might be able to show you where you went wrong perhaps?

    I followed and no profit.
    The IP address was reassigned and could not login. I tried to create a static and rebooted, it will stayed on he previous. (wrong ip address) When I do select and create a static IP it shows that the network is not connected to the wired network…

    Access via the same IP address - 192.168.127.1/fog/management
