Hallo, stefano,

We try/evaluate a solution for this problem on/in some schools.
No "freeradius", no LDAP.

The clients try to login into the samba domain on the Linux-/Samba  
server, they must have a linux-/samba account on this server. That's  

No Microsoft domain, no machine account or so. Quite simple.

The next probably problem (not related to samba): the server also works  
as a communication server, as a proxy server for surfing. We have  
defined that using the proxy server requires an authentication (with the  
linux account) - it works.

No Microsoft domain, no winbind etc.
The client works as a kind of thin client. It must have an OS which can  
mount samba shares - that's enough.

Viele Gruesse!
