Summary
Ltsp-server
Debian Edu LTSP server packages

A metapackage containing dependencies for packages required on all LTSP server installations in the Debian Edu Blend.

Description

For a better overview of the project's availability as a Debian package, each head row has a color code according to this scheme:

If you discover a project which looks like a good candidate for Debian Edu to you, or if you have prepared an unofficial Debian package, please do not hesitate to send a description of that project to the Debian Edu mailing list

The iptables/xtables framework has been replaced by nftables. You should consider migrating now.

iptables is the userspace command line program used to configure the Linux packet filtering and NAT ruleset. It is targeted towards systems and networks administrators.

This package contains several different utilities, the most important ones:

iptables, iptables-save, iptables-restore (nft-based version)

iptables, iptables-save, iptables-restore (legacy version)

ip6tables, ip6tables-save, ip6tables-restore (nft-based version)

This is the server from the Internet Software Consortium's implementation of DHCP.

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a protocol like BOOTP (actually dhcpd includes much of the functionality of bootpd). It gives client machines "leases" for IP addresses and can automatically set their network configuration.

This is the DHCP server with LDAP patches applied to it.

ldm is an X11 display manager similar to xdm, gdm and kdm, but unlike those it wraps the X11 traffic within an SSH tunnel to provide a secure login mechanism for remote X sessions.

This package includes the server components used by ldm to discover available sessions and locales on the server. It also recommends packages relevant for local device access, a login session, and remote sound.

LTSP stands for 'Linux Terminal Server Project'.

Plugins for nagios compatible monitoring systems like Naemon and Icinga. It contains the following plugins:

 check_breeze, check_dbi, check_dig, check_disk_smb, check_dns,
 check_flexlm, check_fping, check_game, check_hpjd, check_ifoperstatus,
 check_ifstatus, check_ldap, check_ldaps, check_mailq, check_mysql,
 check_mysql_query, check_oracle, check_pgsql, check_radius, check_rpc,
 check_snmp, check_wave

This package provides the suite of plugins that are most likely to be useful on a central monitoring host. Some scripts need more packages installed to work, which is implemented as recommends.

Nagios is a host/service/network monitoring and management system.

The purpose of this addon is to allow you to execute Nagios plugins on a remote host in as transparent a manner as possible.

This program runs as a background process on the remote host and processes command execution requests from the check_nrpe plugin on the Nagios host.

rdiff-backup backs up one directory to another, possibly over a network. The target directory ends up a copy of the source directory, but extra reverse diffs are stored in a special subdirectory of that target directory, so you can still recover files lost some time ago. The idea is to combine the best features of a mirror and an incremental backup. rdiff-backup also preserves subdirectories, hard links, dev files, permissions, uid/gid ownership, modification times, extended attributes, acls, and resource forks.

Also, rdiff-backup can operate in a bandwidth efficient manner over a pipe, like rsync. Thus you can use rdiff-backup and ssh to securely back a hard drive up to a remote location, and only the differences will be transmitted. Finally, rdiff-backup is easy to use and settings have sensible defaults.

VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is, in essence, a remote display system which allows you to view a computing `desktop' environment not only on the machine where it is running, but from anywhere on the Internet and from a wide variety of machine architectures.

This package provides a server to which X clients can connect and the server generates a display that can be viewed with a vncviewer.

The difference between the tightvncserver and the normal vncserver is the data encoding, optimized for low bandwidth connections. If the client do not support jpeg or zlib encoding it can use the default one. Later versions of vncserver (> 3.3.3r2) support a new automatic encoding that should be equally good as the tightvnc encoding.

Note: This server does not support or need a display. You need a vncviewer to see something. However, this viewer may also be on a computer running other operating systems in the local net.

xrdp offers a graphical login to a remote client using RDP (the Remote Desktop Protocol). xrdp can connect to a locally created X.org session with the xorgxrdp drivers, to a VNC X11 server, and forward to another RDP server.

xrdp accepts connections from freerdp, rdesktop, and the built-in terminal server / remote desktop clients of Microsoft Windows operating systems. In the xorgxrdp (which replaces X11RDP) and VNC modes, it provides a fully functional Linux terminal server, offering an X-Window desktop to the user. In the RDP or VNC forwarding mode, any sort of desktop can be used.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: guacamole
