A Fully Automatic Swap Server to provide nework based swap service without the need of configuration on either side.

Registered by Oliver Grawert on 2006-02-24

To support low level diskless clients some kind of nework based swap service is needed to make even booting possible. Ubuntu LTSP supports nbd (Network Block Device) swapping through the nbd-server and nbd-client packages. Sadly these packages currently need a fair amount of manual setup. Scope of this spec is to solve this problem and modify the two packages so a fully automatic network swapping is guaranteed if you just install the ndb-server and nbd-client packages on the machines.
