<div class="moz-cite-prefix">I remember you from the Alt Linux
and/or ALTSP lists. It's a small world.<br>
I noted in the original post that a fat client can ping the server
hostname successfully, and also that a standalone on the network
with a net.conf configured with the server hostname successfully
scans with the scanner server.<br>
I thought those were very solid indicators that this is not a name
resolution issue, but I do get some indicators of that very issue
from host and resolv.conf output:<br>
<u>fat client</u> <u>standalone</u><br>
$ host <ltsp-servername> 127.0.1.1
$ /etc/resolv.conf 127.0.0.1
So indeed, the fat client and standalone are handling those
differently. I'll look into it further. Thanks!<br>

entering an IP address.
Fix resolving on your LAN / within the served image, this has
nothing to do with SANE (I've been doing ALTSP, trust me :) --

Start with "resolve" or "host" commands on the fat client
and cite your /etc/resolv.conf when asking for help on
e.g. #ltsp at irc.freenode.net.

preserve so that I don't have to get into the router
configuration when I set one of these up.
If you don't run a farm of servers, you generally want their
LAN IPs configured statically and not dynamically (and if there
was a real reason to do DHCP for *servers* you would know better
already); if your router leases 192.168.1.2+ and has some range
like "2-200" for the last octet, you can put the server at .254
and be done with that.
