Hi Pri

Interesting! Im going down the "thin client" way...to make all of the machines in the cybercafe boot down an ethernet cable from a "master" computer behind the desk. This way no files are kept between customers (the computers have no hard drives in them!). Each time they are rebooted it is like they are having a fresh installation.


interisting system, can a billing work on it Very Happy

The current cybercafe Im dealing with doesnt need it (though Im planning on implementing it at some point). In the past Ive used CafePilot successfully

http://www.dijitanix.com/]

This is cross-platform JAVA based for windows/linux. I did have a problem with the client crashing when I used it (leaving the machines to be freely used!) but it should be possible to make a script monitor the process and to restart it. The client also needs the i.p. address of the server in its config files (I cant remember which one!). Im working on a system of Samba shares for the clients to communicate with the admin machine, so it can "tell it" things like this.

The clients could discover the i.p. address of the master computer via the SAMBA shares, and place that value in the cafepilot config files before starting it up.....but for the moment Im dealing with a really messy networking problem that I hadnt seen coming....so much for the last 6 months work!!!
