When the fog boot menu is loaded is there a way to have it send files using something other then TFTP as TFTP has a file transfer limit of about 1.4mb per second if i remember correctly?

RE: Issues with fog server
Well, today I had time to work on the project. First, the hard drive isn’t the issue and single cast deploy worked fine. Second, When I arrived on sight the lab was dismantled so I had to resort to using a Treadnet 10/100mbps 5 port switch connected to a Managed Cisco Switch which was also connected to a Cisco Router. I then proceed to request a managed switch for use however all that was around at the time was some old netgear switches which had been pulled from the active network for being unreliable and the other one was replaced as it only had 10/100 ethernet ports along with 2 10/100/1000 ports. The two gigabyte switches just didn’t want to work correctly so I decided to try the old 10/100 netgear switch and reset the settings but wasn’t able to access the webadmin panel for it as it seems I need to first console in and change some settings even thought I held the reset button on the front. I wasn’t able to find the needed cable in the storage room so I am assuming we know longer have it and doubt i’ll get the budget to replace it. At this time Multicast just seems to be unfeasible with the current equipment.
Issues with fog server
I am currently having an issue I have no idea what the cause could be. I first imaged 2 computer at once and it took about 17 minutes. I restarted the server hooked up another computer and tried to image three computers at once using multicast and it was telling me it would take 3 hours at this point i decided to check the servers transfer rates and it’s only sending 1mb a second where as before it was sending 30+mb a second. I am unsure whats the best way to figure out what the issue is and how to fix it.
I have done the following so far:
- Replaced the switch
- Replaced all network cables with new ones.
I would like to avoid having to reinstall the fog server if possible but it could be an issue with the hard drive in the server as that seems the most likely cause after everything I have done but am asking just in case it isn’t.
RE: *Attempting to send inventory............ FOREVER?
I find if the full inventory fails the quick inventory will still work most of the time. It could be you need a kernel update as suggested above me.
RE: Is it possible to run Windows XP instillation from FOG?
I have tried using a windows xp disk just having the fog deploy it using the bootmenu and ramdisk but that requires me to create a new installer with some updated drivers.
