    You mean you want to create a VPN? But then the traffic would still go over the internet, using your slow internet connection.

    Hi Falko

    Nop, im thinking on use a new NIC whit an address from my local network...i mean, i have my Public IP to connect to Internet on eth0, i add a second NIC eth1 whit an address to join my local network, so i used this nic to make the backups, actually i made the BU in about 2 the problem is that i cant get this image from the client (to restore) i have some error codes like:

    when trying to create Install diskette:

    So i try to create the diskette in my win box using rawwrite, and adding the local.cfg file (created in a linux box to get the correct linebreaks)..but when i boot in a new machine after a yellow welcome screen i get some errors and the process stops and dont restore the image:

    Another thing: to use the si_mkautoinstalldiskette command on the image server i need to install previusly syslinux whit:

    apt-get install syslinux
    because the mkauntoinstalldiskette didnt find the isolinux.bin file

    Any comments...thanks a lot

    Is it a normal floppy drive? A USB floppy doesn't work, for example.

    Its a normal Floppy...
    One more thing... the image server and the golden client machines are both AMD64...but all are running fine....

    Then this looks strange:

    Maybe the problem is that SystemImager doesn't support x86_64 systems yet. :confused:
