The standard targeting environment assumes:
- Dedicated hardware for school server;
- Client machines connected via Intranet to the server.
The final environment might be similar.
Run Sugar Network node
Before running installed server, populate the
/etc/sugar-network/config configuration file with content similar to the following (to get the full list of configuration options, call the
sugar-network-node config command):
[main] # debug logging level; 0 means only warning and errors debug = 3 # path to a directory to place log files logdir = /var/log/sugar-network # path to a directory to place pid files rundir = /var/run/sugar-network # if specified, use this directory for cached files; such files might take # considerable number of bytes cachedir = /var/cache/sugar-network [node] host = 0.0.0.0 port = 8000 # path to a directory to place server data data-root = /var/lib/sugar-network # switch off user credentials check; disabling this option will require # OpenSSH-5.6 or later trust-users = True
Make sure that all directories in the config file are created and the current user has write permissions there.
Run node server:
Server will start serving Sugar Network API for clients from
port specified in configuration file.
Synchronization with master node
Note that the newly installed Sugar Network node will be empty, its content should be fetched from the master node.
If school server has Internet connectivity, launch
sugar-network-node and start online synchronization:
If only sneakernet is available:
sugar-network-node offline-sync PATH-TO-PLACE-SYNCHRONIZATION-FILES
PATH-TO-PLACE-SYNCHRONIZATION-FILES path will contain files that should be uploaded to the master to download response. Postponed synchronization will happen by running the
sugar-network-sync shell script (which will be created by
offline-sync command in targeting path) in environment with Internet connectivity. Then, re-run
offline-sync command specifying path with new file synchronization files.
Clients should be pointed to the Sugar Network node launched on a school server. Populate the
/etc/sweets.conf configuration file with the following options:
[client] api-url = http://SCHOOL-SERVER-HOST-HERE:8000
Run Sugar Network clients
Follow the Try it install instructions to setup Sugar Network client.
While working, Sugar Network client logs can be found in the
~/.sugar/default/logs/sugar-network-client file. The logging verbosity level depends on the global Sugar setting.
