Fog and remote site VPN tunnels
Does FOG have this capability?
We have a main site with our FOG, DNS, DHCP server and secure VPN and many remote sites with secure VPN tunnels back to here.
My clients at the remote sites are picking up a DHCP address but are just sitting at the TFTP… syntax.
It never goes any farther (PXE is first in boot order. All clients work with no issues when not going over the VPN tunnels.
Look here for some information regarding pxe/tftp over vpn.
Please do not post the same quest in multiple forums.
I would hazard a guess that you’re sites are far enough away from the TFTP server that they’re timing out. I’m not sure where the documentation exists at this point, as it was just a user modification that did this and not something official, but you can set up remote TFTP servers (generally just add the TFTP service to a remote FOG node) and then use NFS to share the /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/ directory from the main site’s TFTP server to the node sites’ TFTP servers. If your issue is TFTP timeouts then that would take care of it.
