I'm trying to set up FOG to image the many computers on campus. DHCP is handled through Smoothwall School Guardian. I need to modify the DHCP settings on School Guardian so it points the PXE services to the FOG server. Does anyone know how this is done in Smoothwall School Guardian? Static IPs are mostly used on the network, but there is a Dynamic range for visitors. I'm not that familiar with DHCP, SchoolGuardian or FOG so any help you can give me would be much appreciated.

Hey :)

Following:

On School Guardian, you’d implement as follows:

– in Services > DHCP > DHCP Server, select your subnet and click the advanced button
– under “TFTP server” enter the IP of your FOG server (“TFTP Server” field = DHCP “nextserver” field)
– under “Network boot filename” enter the filename on the TFTP server, which AFAICT is pxelinux.0
– Click save at the bottom of the page. You’ll need to restart the DHCP services via Services > DHCP > Global

HTH,

Rob
