Jim needs help setting up a school server. For starters, I referred him to:
He has the following questions.
> what's missing at least in part is network
> topology and possibilities, especially on the
> LAN side of the xs.
> for example, assuming eth0 for WAN (internet
> access) and eth1 for LAN (xo) access, can we
> connect eth1 to a switch and connect an access
> point to the switch (this lets us connect xo
> boxes either by wifi or by wire).
> as a different example, how to configure one
> of those cheap little home routers so we can
> connect eth1 to the router and then connect xo
> boxes either to the built-in switch on the
> router or the built-in access point on the
> router to allow the xs dhcp server to respond
> to xo requests for ip addresses (i.e. inhibit
> the router's dhcp server)?
> these are not really xo and xs considerations
> except that these are some of the stumbling
> blocks we've encountered in our so-far-failed
> attempt to get the school server working with
> the xo boxes.
