I am wanting to learn about ldap so I am trying to build a pdc with ldap. I have finally gotten the bugs worked out on the samba pdc part and now I want to try and use ldap as the password manager(is that the right term?). I have O'Reilly's LDAP book and they are talking about installing from source as opposed to a pre-rolled installer.
My question is this: I am using FreeBSD5.1 and I want to know should I just install it using the ports or should I go ahead and do it and the dependencies by source? Would it benefit me more to do it by source? Also, does FreeBSD5.1 have support for threads? I know these are probably lame questions but to me they are legitimate. My ultimate goal is to have a samaba pdc with an ldap backend using kerberos authentication. I would like to have one login for all services i.e.fileserver,mailserver,citrixserver. If anyone has any suggestions as to why or why not this is a good idea I would be interested to hear them as well. Thanks for any suggestions, Jon _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
