    From my understanding both WDS and FOG servers can run fine together but you can only point the clients (desktops and laptops) to one deployment system at a time as this is set in DHCP, option 66 and 67.

    Edit: Not sure this can be done but you might be able to set an option in FOG's PXE menu to boot the WDS deployment environment - maybe custom creating a WINPE ISO to connect to the WDS environment. Again havent played with it like that to know if this is possible.

    ports..., do you have an internal DHCP server? or are you trying to role out images to multiple sites?

    we have tried setting it up before and have had problems when it comes to intial package, and seemed to be problems with the swgfl firewall..

    OK, well in my experience in setting up FOG I never had to open any ports from SWGFL (secondary and two primaries). I installed ubuntu (10.04LTS is your best bet), put in our local proxy settings and ran updates, then downloaded the fog installation, extracted it to the opt folder and installed it from terminal.

    You need to configure apt.conf (assuming some Debian derivative) with you proxy details so the fog install script can download packages, and then once installed, put you proxy details into FOG. As long as your SWGFL proxy will allow access to your chosen Linux distribution's repositories you won't have any problems. If you want to run a WDS and FOG mix then the easiest way is using DHCP groups and modifying the boot options per group.
