    Ubuntu 10.04 LTSP-Thin client network boot over Internet

    Hello guys,
    I am very new to the Linux world and really found it impressive with lots of helping hands . I am currently doing some experimentation on my two laptops for Ubuntu 10.04 LTSP. Till now I am able to do PXE boot to my thin client laptop over LAN using cross-over cable.
    I want to know is it possible to boot my thin client over Internet( be it wireless mobile broadband,DSL,dial up or anything) ? If yes,then what is the step-by-step procedure ?

    I have not done any work on lan booting or thin clients but here is some leads Ubuntu has in it's help site:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ThinClients, and
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DisklessUbuntuHowto
    might help out.
    This sub-forum is for UEC, I haven't checked but I believe there is a sub-forum better suited for your interest.

    Also:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ub...SPQuickInstall

    and, of course, the Linux LTSP website:

    http://www.ltsp.org/

    Of course, the ltsp-server and GUI ltsp-manager are available as packages from the Package Managers (or apt-get install from the command line).

    Right now the killer is being surrounded by a web of deduction, forensic science,
    and the latest in technology such as two-way radios and e-mail.
