    How to gt rid Of Microsoft server technology


    I have a very generalistic question : How can I build up a LAN without any use of Microsft technology, based on Linux fir exemple.

    I am actually testing samba as a transition solution.

    But How is it possible to build a LAN without anay NT technoloy and still have :

    -Secured users loggin and ressources adminitration

    -remore/local access with attack/virus protection

    -windows clients support and possibly acces to theirs disks and printers

    -domain or area definition, workgroup management

    -Secured Lan extension using VPN.

    This definition may look pretty dummy to anyone using Linux regularly, but so far it looks very difficult to me to understand in which direction I should start.

    Thanks a lot for any advice, URL, ....!

    And a generalistic answer....Solaris, BSD, linux.

    I'd start by learning some linux/Unix. Read the tut's here on AO. They are jam packed with good stuff.

    perhaps Samba but that is based on NT stuff
    You'll need that if you just want to replace the NT part but keep the Win9x part

    otherwise ssh and sftp r realy safe (ssh2)
