That sounds perfect and exactly what I'm looking for. I'm reading the document on Kickstart ( https://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/Inst ... -file.html
I'm assuming this is the latest documentation on how to set this up.
I have another thread created under Security that involves iptables rules and the Gnome Firewall GUI program. I guess that ties into this now.
I want to allow remote access to the server, so employees can install CentOS 7 from their houses, connecting to the server, accessing the Kickstart file, but I only want to allow access to the server from employees IP addresses.
Assuming the gateway and switch are properly configured to allow DHCP / BOOTP traffic through the firewall, all I'd need to do on the physical server (after configuring the DHCP server) is to configure iptables to allow certain public IP addresses to that DHCP server, right? Then the employees will pop in the bootable media I created, it should connect automatically to my server, and use the kickstart file (I'll follow the directions in the article to create the kickstart file and media).
