I have managed to create an image of a machine. However, when trying to install the image remotely I am having issues. I put the Management Agent on a client machine and can see the machine in the Management Console. I create a deployment task for the selected image and assign it to the client computer. The client computer reboots into the Management Agent. However, it stays in the state of Connecting to OS Deployment Server. (It stays like this  until I cancel the deployment task or it reaches its timeout.) On the deployment server the client machine shows as preparing. Both machines are in the same subnet.

If I create a deployment CD and put the image (tib) file on a usb drive, I can install the image to the machine. However, I am unable to install the image through the network. Any advice is appreciated.
