    Gusty LTSP Screen Viewer

    I upgraded to using Gusty with LTSP. The multiple screen sessions has been solved in this release however I can no longer use the screen viewer in the Thin Client Manager. I installed x11vnc on the thin client by doing the following

    sudo mount --bind /dev /opt/ltsp/i386/dev
    sudo mount -t proc none /opt/ltsp/i386/proc
    # Make sure that resolv will work iin chroot
    sudo cp /etc/resolv.conf /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/

    Now chroot the /opt/ltsp/i386
    sudo chroot /opt/ltsp/i386
    sudo apt-get install x11vnc

    I also installed ssh the same way. On Feisty all this worked. What I have noticed is that on feisty If I were to vnc to the machine I would do
    vncviewer IPAddress:0 (the ipaddress would be the ip from the dhcp server for the thin client)
    And all would be good. Same idea with ssh for example ssh user@ipaddress. (once again the IP is from the DHCP server)

    Now on Gusty I have found it wants to use the LTSP servers IP for everything. How can I get this to use the ip supplied from the dhcp server?
    For example say the server has an ip of and the client has
    On feisty I would do vncviewer and vnc would work. Same with ssh. Example ssh user@
    On gusty to use vncviewer I can only do vncviewer (the server IP)
    If I do vncviewer I get unable to connect to host connection refused (111)
