iSCSI and Debian

In the context of computer storage, iSCSI allows a machine to use an iSCSI initiator (client) to connect to remote targets (servers) such as disks and tape drives on an IP network for block level I/O. From the point of view of the class drivers and application software, the devices appear as locally attached SCSI devices. (source: wikipedia: iSCSI )

This page is about installing, configuring and using iSCSI under Debian.

Remember, the initiator is the "client".
