Question about install of FOG imaging software
Long time lurker. First time post.
I'm trying to install FOG, and I'm hitting a problem that has been asked on the FOG forums, but never received an answer. Thought I would post here in the hope someone else has some ideas.
Basically, we've installed FOG (vers 0.27) via the VM image supplied from their site. This runs on Ubuntu, but because it's an image file, I don't do any Ubuntu install.
I've configured FOG exactly as suggested in the install notes. I have not selected it to be a DHCP server as there is one on our network elsewhere. Everything appears to install correctly, but we cannot access the FOG server through the web interface.
Trying to do this, simply results in a standard Internet Explorer "cannot display the webpage" error. I can definitely ping the IP address of the new webserver, both from the machine with the VMWare server on, and another machine on the network.
I'm at a loss as to what else could be wrong. I've tried reinstalling from scratch, tried different IP addresses, nothing works.

Are you trying to access the FOG interface using domain name or IP address? Can you access it on the local machine?

Have you done this bit.
To set options 066 and 067 on Windows Server:
1. Open DHCP configuration Start > Administrative Tools > DHCP.
2. Then expand your server, expand the applicable scope (often only one is there)
3. right click on Scope Options
4. click Configure Options
5. tick 066 and enter the IP Address of the FOG server
6. tick 067 and enter pxelinux.0 (thats a zero).
7. Make sure that 060 is unticked.

^^That will only affect the PXE boot settings though, but obviously it's important overall - it won't affect accessibility by browser.

Apologies for delay in responding - been on leave for a few days moving house!
I've done the ifconfig suggestion. The IP address that is given is the one that I set up when configuring FOG. (192.168.2.166) for the record.
http://192.168.2.166/fog simply gives the "Internet Explorer cannot display webpage" error.
I am trying to do this from the local machine. I have also tried it on other machines on the network. I CAN ping 192.168.2.166 and get a response. But not the webinterface.
I HAVEN'T done the DHCP configuration. The DHCP server is run by a 3rd party company to which we have no access. I've requested the changes. But surely this shouldn't effect what I am trying to do.
To try and test this, I changed the IP address of the FOG machine, but the behaviour was the same.
Thanks for the suggestions

If you go through a proxy then modify your browser to bypass the proxy for that local IP address / hostname and see what happens then.

Why is it that the most obvious solutions are the ones you never think of.
Thanks very much.
