Debian Edu Project
Summary
Ltsp-server
Debian Edu networked LTSP server packages

A metapackage containing dependencies for packages required on all networked 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

Multi-threaded TFTP server implementing all options (option extension and multicast) as specified in RFC1350, RFC2090, RFC2347, RFC2348 and RFC2349. Atftpd also supports multicast protocol known as mtftp, defined in the PXE specification. The server supports being started from inetd(8) as well as in daemon mode using init scripts.

iptables is the userspace command line program used to configure the Linux packet filtering ruleset. It is targeted towards system administrators. Since Network Address Translation is also configured from the packet filter ruleset, iptables is used for this, too. The iptables package also includes ip6tables. ip6tables is used for configuring the IPv6 packet filter

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'.

LtspFS is a remote filesystem consisting of two parts: 1) A network server daemon that runs on the LTSP terminal. 2) A FUSE module that runs in userspace on the server, that connects with the daemon on the client.

This package contains the userspace parts for the LTSP server.

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.

Network Block Device (NBD) is a client/server protocol that emulates a block device (such as a hard disk, a floppy, or a CD-ROM) over the network, thus giving the system the ability to swap over the network, or to use raw network disk space for other purposes.

However, writing to one Network Block Device from different clients simultaneously is not recommended, and would probably result in data loss. If you want multiple clients to share a remote resource, use a network file system such as NFS or Coda.

This package provides the server binary for NBD.

PulseAudio, previously known as Polypaudio, is a sound server for POSIX and WIN32 systems. It is a drop in replacement for the ESD sound server with much better latency, mixing/re-sampling quality and overall architecture.

These are some of PulseAudio's features:

  • High quality software mixing of multiple audio streams with support for more than one sink/source. May be used to combine multiple sound cards into one (with sample rate adjustment).

  • Wide range of supported client libraries. ESD, ALSA, oss, libao and GStreamer client applications are supported as-is. Native PulseAudio plug-ins are also available for xmms and mplayer.

  • Good low latency behaviour and very accurate latency measurement for playback and recording. Ability to fully synchronize multiple playback streams.

  • Network transparency, allowing an application to play back or record audio on a different machine than the one it is running on.

  • Extensible plug-in architecture with plug-ins for jackd, multicast-rtp lirc and avahi, just to name a few.

This package contains the daemon and basic module set.

PulseAudio, previously known as Polypaudio, is a sound server for POSIX and WIN32 systems. It is a drop in replacement for the ESD sound server with much better latency, mixing/re-sampling quality and overall architecture.

These tools provide command line access to various features of the PulseAudio sound server. Included tools are:

  paplay - Playback a WAV file via a PulseAudio sink.
  pacat - Cat raw audio data to a PulseAudio sink.
  parec - Cat raw audio data from a PulseAudio source.
  pacmd - Connect to PulseAudio's built-in command line control interface.
  pactl - Send a control command to a PulseAudio server.
  padsp - /dev/dsp wrapper to transparently support OSS applications.
  pax11publish - Store/retrieve PulseAudio default server/sink/source

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.

Squashfs is a highly compressed read-only filesystem for Linux. It uses zlib compression to compress both files, inodes and directories. Inodes in the system are very small and all blocks are packed to minimise data overhead. Block sizes greater than 4K are supported up to a maximum of 64K.

Squashfs is intended for general read-only filesystem use, for archival use (i.e. in cases where a .tar.gz file may be used), and in constrained block device/memory systems (e.g. embedded systems) where low overhead is needed.

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

iTALC makes it possible to access and guide the activities of students from the computer of the teacher. For example, with the help of iTALC a teacher can view the contents of students' screens and see if any of them need help. If so, the teacher can access the student's desktop and provide support; the student can watch the teacher's actions and learn from them. Alternatively the teacher can switch into "demo-mode", where all the students' screens show the contents of the teacher's screen. Furthermore, actions like locking students' screens, killing games, powering clients on or off, and much more can all be performed via iTALC.

This package contains the client software for iTALC, which can be controlled using italc-master.
