Re: Re : Single signe on for windows client using Open LDAP


Yes i wish to migrate desktop as well ( where majority is MS Windows)
group office which is a open source also uses OPEN LDAP as i read on the web.

My aim is to have an Open LDAP server to have single sign on ( to the Donain)
where users will be automatically have their permission to the services which
they are entitled.
With this i hope to authenticate squid as well. At the moment i use /etc/shadow
to authenticate squid and where my mail is on sendmail with squirrel mail.
probably i hope to have a group wear solution (group- offfice /Kolab).
I know this can be done with linux desktop.
But in my case my desktops are MS window.

Any good documents are mostly well come.

Do you mean desktop authentication too?

Yes, squid has an authenticator for LDAP that works with OpenLDAP.

Kolab is a groupware server that uses OpenLDAP for authentication, but
it doesn't quite play nicely with other setups yet.

You may want to look at the articles at mandrakesecure.net. They are
getting a bit outdated, but most content is still relevant.
