    Thinstation - No Valid Session Type

    I've spent the afternoon trying to setup Thinstation, I've been through the TS-O-Matic, created my Thinstation Image, put it on my WDS server, got a workstation to boot from it and then.... get the error No Valid Session Type and I'm now stumped.

    As far as I can tell, I've got everything right, I've re-editted the thinstation.conf.network several times and rebuilt the image with rdesktop instead of freerdp but don't know where to go now and can't find what the most common cause of the error is.

    I've attached the two latest thinstation.conf.network's if someone could take a look and see if I've made any glaring errors or give me another area to tackle to try and get this working?

    Cheers!

    Spent the afternoon looking at this since there was no one to interupt me which was quite nice.

    Thinstation boot's using PXE fine, but doesn't ever pull down the thinstation.conf.network from the server. I setup tftpd on my computer to test it to rule out WDS interfering with it at any point and it still does the same and can see it pulling down the boot files but it never seems to request the thinstation.conf.network file in the log.

    I created a debug image and can ping ip addresses without a problem so the NIC driver is there and working, but I'm stuck as to where to go from here to try and diagnose why it's not getting the conf file.

    Any hints?

    Hi Cache,

    My thinstation install is also not pulling down the thinstation config file. How did you manage to fix this problem?

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Hiya

    When I built the config using the ts-o-matic, after I had built the image I think I had to change this line:

    Code:
    NET_FILE_ENABLED=Off
    #NET_FILE_METHOD=tftp
    It should be

    Code:
    NET_FILE_ENABLED=On
    NET_FILE_METHOD=tftp
    I think, even though I didn't tick to include it when I built the final image, it still wouldn't boot from the network without changing it.
