SOLVED new server build and Downloading inits, kernels and client fails
CentOS 7(now Debian 8 using the Turnkey Linux LAMP stack) server setup and when running the latest trunk installer [r5113] it fails on ‘Downloading inits, kernels and client’
I have seen this issue in the forum during my browsing but unable to resolve, I have rerun the installer as i have seen it stated that the sometimes this would fail but then be ok…
also I did see a thread the other day about downloading the inits manually as a test however I seem unable to find it.
After trying to download the client I now have the FOG Server set up after getting https://github-cloud.s3.amazonaws.com unblocked by our provider LGFL (along with the below four links from yesterday)
I know I can browse to the github from my work laptop. But will check the fog client links from the server first thing

No proxy is used in that sense, sorry should have said. But our internet feed is restricted when compared to what you would have at your house for example.
just to add that I am able to download Current Init’s and Kernels from the Command Line
without being able to see what stage it gets to (if any), would I be right to assume it fails on the client download?
(I have now also switched to Debian 8 as this is what I use in my home lab for FOG)
@falko Maybe I didn’t ask the question correctly. Let me try again.
Must you use a proxy server to access the internet via a browser such as IE, FireFox, or Chrome? If you do need to configure the browser with a proxy server setting then you must make a few changes to the linux environment to support this.
we do not have direct access to the internet as we go through our local authority/London Grid for Learning
nslookup fogproject.org does resolve
I guess the first question(s) are:
Is your fog server behind a proxy server or does it have direct internet access?
Can your FOG server resolve DNS names from the internet (i.e. fogproject.org)?
The issue the other day was with ubuntu, curl and ssl not being happy.
[Edit] I was off a bit on this one, the ubuntu an curl issue was related to downloading the checksums from the FOG host servers with this commnad
curl -ko "checksums" https://fogproject.org/inits/index.phpThe two questions are still valid [/Edit]
