I'd be interested in a read. I am currently using NIS/YP with FreeBSD servers and Linux clients... makes things very interesting. I've been meaning to exploit PAM for a more modern solution but it hasn't been a huge priority.

I just need changes replicated, CARP can handle failover. -Patrick On 24/03/2008, Tim Judd <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > Jon Theil Nielsen wrote: > > I asked this on freebsd-net@ but got no replies.
