Great idea and looks so simple!!!
I managed to get a hybrid going after working out the network issues (see my other post)....but!
The documentation says
"Pluto allows a user to plug in any type of device and automatically configure it and let the user start using it right away without doing anything. The way this is accomplished is with an extension to the DHCP server. When a new device is plugged into the network and requests an IP address, this program connects to a central database to do a lookup of the device's unique MAC address to see what type of device it is. The database defines all the configuration data the device needs to run, and references the software drivers needed. This program then downloads and installs any needed software, adds configuration pages for the device to the user's config website, and adds the device in the user's local database."
So, I plug in a XP Thinkpad laptop into the switch thinking that it will be found and automatically added as a Media director. It doesn't!!!
The laptop aquires an IP address when I connect it, and can access the admin area, so I don't understand why it doesn't work?
Then I chose to do a network boot of the laptop, thinking this may work, but it doesn't.
I'm obviously missing something crucial, but probably simple. Can someone help?
