Hello, I could really use some help brainstorming for a bit of a complex set up, mainly with regards to the LAN network. We are implementing Kolibri in a large orphanage. This will be done through computers acting as servers in each home/ computer lab along with multiple tablets for each location that will act as clients. Overall, we will be using desktop computers as servers in over 20 separate rooms. What equipment will be needed to connect tablets to each of these individual computers? Can I have all the servers on one single LAN, or does each server need it’s own unique network? We already have internet access wired across many parts of our community with one large connection expanded by routers.
So far I have looked into RACHEL units as a simple and suitable option for making a quick connection our tablets could connect to, but I am guessing it would be a lot more cost-effective and give our tablets more range in each home to use computers that we already have as servers, with LAN connections instead. If you can link me to common LAN setups and the hardware that I will need, or give me some help planning out how to set up 20 separate computers to be servers, please let me know. I would like to start obtaining the hardware to implement it asap.
