This is exactly what Kerberos is good at. It's harder to administer than NIS, but doesn't require as much trust of the client machines. For yet another set of security profiles, LDAP can be useful. All of these (and, in fact, any scheme that remotely meets the rough criteria given) will require configuration on each client as well as the server. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
