i posted this in samba-general, but nobody answered. I assume the
problem was too complex for that list's members...
i'm running freebsd 4.8 release on our fileservers. we serve files to
over 50 macintosh OS 9 clients, and we use netatalk to do it. However,
all our username/password info is managed by the corporate IT dept. and
they run Win2000. To avoid having to maintain my own password database,
I'd like to use the authentication mechanism built into samba to
authenticate our netatalk users. I'd also like to expand that
authentication scheme to allow unix interactive logins using usernames
hosted from the company's domain controller.
This probably isn't even possible, yet..
Can anybody help me on this? Specifically what extra ports I need to
install or options I must recompile with? Can I use PAM to help?
please also reply to my email eric_at_astria.org
