I have problem (as you noticed ;] ). I have to make unified
authorisation system for large, unsecure network connected to a two
Polish skelete networks. As you see I need to do it right to avoid big

The goal is to have windows and linux computers authorized by one
Linux mashine. I can do it by installing samba as a windows domain
controller. It would work for windows. Linuxes can authorize using
windows domain serwer too, but I would like to avoid unneeded mess
with this as they can authorize in that serwer more native way.

Any user not authorized in a windows domain will not have acces to the
outer world nor to the local serwers (except domain server, of
course), so... so they should be visible, no matter of the
authorisation way.

Aslo, home folders (or at least document subfolder) should mount
automaticly from authorisation server (linux boxes does it
automatically right now so I don't want to destroy it), changing
password should be global, pasword _can not_ be send throught the net
without encryption.

As you see, it is a quite big thing. I'm reading documentation a long
time, but I do need some advices/links/anything.

Advocatus Diaboli - someone should do this job.
