I am currently working on a small network system for my Daughters school. I've
got the basic layout worked out.
In the office will be the Internet gateway and StarOffice server. This will be
networked to 7 or 8 classroom PC's, one for each class. The classroom PC's will
have X-Terminals networked to them. I've currently got a similar set-up at home
I've got one question, though. I know each X-Terminal will log-in to the
classroom PC with it's own display, but it would be nice if there could be a
window on ALL the X-Terminals showing what the teacher is doing on their PC.
This way, the teacher can demonstrate things without needing a projector, the
students could just watch the window on their own screen. Does anyone know of a
program or tool that would do this?
I am hoping to get two working X-Terminals set-up from my PII 350. I've got one
working, I just need to install Debian and the base X-server onto the other one.
Also, what is needed to set-up the networked StarOffice? I know that StarOffice
can be set up on one server, and then clients can work with it over the network,
but I'm not sure how it needs to be set up. Does the StarOffice server PC need
to export a directory to the client PC's? At the moment my networking experience
is limited, but I'm learning more and more as I work with my system.
I think for the demo, I'll set up my PII350 as a StarOffice server, use my
Daughters P166 as the Classroom PC, and have two X-Terminals running off the
P166. I am hoping to have the demonstration ready shortly after the holidays. If
all goes well, I can start setting up the system during the summer break and
have it ready to roll-out for next year!
I know there is some StarOffice experienced people on this list. I just hope
someone knows a way to export a display to the X-Terminals. This would really be
a great thing!
