Fog 1.1.1 with ProxyDHCP: /default.ipxe... Connection timed out



  • Hi,

    I am trying to set up a working fog server with ProxyDHCP. I use this howto:
    and /opt/fog_1.1.1/installation.txt.

    If boot a client pc by network I end with this mesage:
    http://ipxe.org/4c126035)[/I][/INDENT]

    Here are some technical details:

    • Kubuntu 12.04 (updated)
    • Fog 1.1.1
    • Firewall is turned off
    • FritzDSL-Router (without any options set that hould cause problems)

    Content of /etc/network/interfaces
    [INDENT][I]auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
    address 192.168.1.254
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    gateway 192.168.1.1
    dns-nameservers 192.168.1.1[/I][/INDENT]

    Content of /etc/dnsmasq.d/ltsp.conf
    [INDENT][I]# Don’t function as a DNS server:
    #port=0

    Log lots of extra information about DHCP transactions.

    log-dhcp

    Dnsmasq can also function as a TFTP server. You may uninstall

    tftpd-hpa if you like, and uncomment the next line:

    enable-tftp

    Set the root directory for files available via FTP.

    tftp-root=/tftpboot

    The boot filename, Server name, Server Ip Address

    dhcp-boot=undionly.kpxe,fog-Aspire-5110,192.168.1.254

    rootpath option, for NFS

    #dhcp-option=17,/images

    kill multicast

    #dhcp-option=vendor:pXEClient,6,2b

    Disable re-use of the DHCP servername and filename fields as extra

    option space. That’s to avoid confusing some old or broken DHCP clients.

    dhcp-no-override

    PXE menu. The first part is the text displayed to the user. The second is the timeout, in seconds.

    pxe-prompt=“Press F8 for boot menu”, 3

    The known types are x86PC, PC98, IA64_EFI, Alpha, Arc_x86,

    Intel_Lean_Client, IA32_EFI, BC_EFI, Xscale_EFI and X86-64_EFI

    This option is first and will be the default if there is no input from the user.

    pxe-service=X86PC, “Boot from network”, undionly

    A boot service type of 0 is special, and will abort the

    net boot procedure and continue booting from local media.

    #pxe-service=X86PC, “Boot from local hard disk”, 0

    If an integer boot service type, rather than a basename is given, then the

    PXE client will search for a suitable boot service for that type on the

    network. This search may be done by multicast or broadcast, or direct to a

    server if its IP address is provided.

    pxe-service=x86PC, “Install windows from RIS server”, 1[/I][/INDENT]

    Could anybody help please?

  • Matthew,

    thank you for this idea. I already switched to a more reliable solution. I might try Fog in the future again with firewall turned off.



  • Tob,

    I was having the same problem. The way around it was to turn off the firewall on my router. Let me know if that helps.

  • I have the same problem…
    some clients are succsefully conncting to FOG (and uploading\downloading images) and some get the 4c126035 error…
