@dorian Please try Veyon 4.1 Beta which has builtin systemd support and thus starts the service automatically for graphical user sessions. The 4.1 Beta packages are already available for Ubuntu 18.04.

RE: Setting up a computer lab from spare hardware - compatibility questions.
Hi @tonypace Veyon should work on all of your machines but for the 32 bit machines you'll have to build binary packages on your own - see https://github.com/veyon/veyon/blob/master/README.md for details
On your modern x64 machines you can use the binary package provided for Ubuntu 18.04 (when using Veyon 4.1 Beta which I suggest for new installations).
Veyon Master might consume lots of RAM depending on how many computers you are monitoring so if you're running many other applications in parallel 2 GB might not be sufficient.
RE: Install Veyon Linux
Hi @rbaca - did you take a look at our admin manual at htts://docs.veyon.io ? It describes all the fundamentals. On Linux please download the suitable binary package for your Linux distribution and install it. Afterwards you'll likely have to run "apt-get -f install" which will install all missing dependencies (repositories for easy installation are being worked on). If you install Veyon 4.1 Beta you have automatic service integration and do not need to add the Veyon Service to autostart (which is required for Veyon 4.0 - see INSTALL file for details).
RE: Master Disconnects from LAN and have to reboot all student PC's
OK I'll have a look whether we can improve the connection timeout settings.
RE: I can usse without IP STATICS
You can try to use host names instead of IP addresses. If that's not possible you can only limit the range for dynamic IP address leases in your DHCP server configuration and add host entries for every possible IP address in Veyon Configurator. An automatic discovery plugin for dynamic environments will be available later this year.
RE: Remote Connections
do you use server ports other than the default ones (i.e. 11100)? If so please upgrade to Veyon >= 4.0.7 which contains a fix for remote control with non-default ports. If you didn't change the ports you normally shouldn't encounter any problems. Which authentication method are you using? Are you using access control rules?
