I don’t know much about the JNLP connector; we tend to use the SSH connector internally
and we don’t have to do anything special there for file copying to work.

If you look into the systemvm script, it invokes veewee, which is what needs the
isos. We copy them from master to limit bandwidth utilization of upstream. But, to make some
progress, you can install them by hand too from any other place, or, you can disable the copy-from-master
to have veewee attempt to download the ISO from the internet.
