Virtual LTSP Server

Description of the project: LTSP allows computers of a LAN to boot through network from a single server. One of the benefits of this is for example to cut down the administration and maintenance time of a classroom of computers (instead of installing, configuring and updating each of them, we do it only once). It also works on VirtualBox, if a bridged adapter is added to an ethernet interface and the promiscuous mode is set to "Allow All".

The aim of this project is to build vagrant scripts that start up automatically a standard VirtualBox LTSP server, including tools for easy configuration and customization. This can be useful so that teachers can have their own LTSP server installed on their laptop (it works well with fat clients).

Another option is to install a LTSP server in a Docker container, using the Docker Scripts farmework.

The student can attempt any of these tasks or both.
