Internet Cafe services Internet Cafe services fireburner69 (Programmer) (OP) 10 Nov 04 03:09 Is there any way of having a server that Will HOLD all the games and each client will be able to run the games from the server? is that possible to be done and if yes with what tools?Also is there a way of setting a default image of the clients and every time they boot up they will be recovered to this image? RE: Internet Cafe services bcastner (IS/IT--Management) 10 Nov 04 09:08 There are virtual CD Servers, but for most games you would be in violation of their copyrights to serve them as you describe. You would have to crack the protection schemes, and surely an Internet Cafe site should not go there as a business model.If for your second question you want unique images of every client to be saved and restored, this is doable but infeasable except in a Domain setting. I do not think most Internet Cafe users would be willing to have you do a Domain join of their machines. You would completely screw-up the original system state of their computers.If on the other hand you want to lock the configuration of your machines so that they always reboot to a known state, this can be done with:. Manadatory Profiles: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;.... Third-Party applications. Symantec's GoBack will support this feature, as will DeepFreeze: http://www.faronics.com/main.asp?pg=professional. You could also adapt the tools designed for Public Access workstations in sites such as libraries: http://www.pacomputing.org/PACTool/pactoolhome.asp... RE: Internet Cafe services fireburner69 (Programmer) (OP) 12 Nov 04 07:10 How can I make the procedure more easier for anyone from having one person to install the games to all the PCs! I have license for all games! But I would like for example to have them in one server something like a Game Application server! if something like that exists!Is there a way of making our life easier! For example If I have an image in the server and each time each PC loads the image! something like that will be cool!Is there anythiing like that?And how exacly does internet cafes work!? RE: Internet Cafe services bcastner (IS/IT--Management) 16 Nov 04 16:47 . if you have an internet cafe, not single user, license to all games, it would have been explained how to do this;. you use a virtual CD Rom server. One example: http://www.virtualcd-online.com/vcd/apps/overview/fileserver.cfm?lg=0You want to avoid a CD Rom server that requires a cafe workstation (unless yours only) that requires a client installation.
