- 
-If you do not have dedicated iSCSI target hardware, you will need to install the iSCSI Enterprise Target Daemon (ietd). ​ If you are lucky, then your distro will already have packaged this for you; try installing a package called //​iscsitarget//​ or //​iscsi-target//​. ​ If this fails, you can download the source for the latest version from [[http://​sourceforge.net/​project/​showfiles.php?​group_id=108475&​package_id=117141]].
