    Anywhere TS - I give up

    I have set up this today in a test environment with a 2003 server running DHCP and with Anywhere TS TFTP service. I wanted to use the software because of its capability of have a splash screen on start up. I am windows person and have no experience of Linux.

    I have played around with this al morning and can't get the thing to work. The PXE client gets a DHCP address but cant find the boot file. PXE-T01 File Found followed by PXE-E3B TFTP error.

    I have tried all sorts, double checked everything and still no good.

    I fol owed the install file from the site and also tried one from THinstation.org and still no luck.

    Can anyone advise.

    In the tftp32 server it cones it detects the client but says 123 system call CreateFile. The filename, directory name or volume label is incorrect.

    As i said i have double checked everything. I have googled to check the DHCP scope options and i have all these correct as well


    Arrrrggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    check your NTFS permissions on the server on the folder holding the boot image. Try changing to allow "everyone" for testing purposes

    Surely some of you Thin Client Gurus have come across this?

    I use AnywhereTS...

    Have you tried using a different TFTP server software?

    I use Solarwinds and its free and works wonders.

    Make sure the tftp server is starting in the directory where the initial boot file is, namely the preloader, this is what the clients look for first then they look for the kernel and finally the initrd image.

    Also did you add the dhcp option to the windows dhcp server, namely the "next server" option, which has to point o the ip address of the tftp server.
