Hi Mike, The short answer is yes. The longer answer is FreeBSD, like all unices, has been built from the ground up as a multi-user network operating system. Allowing multiple users to work at the same time on a FreeBSD box is as simple as enabling ssh and adding users to the system. If you want to give them graphical access, you can use X forwarding, or if you are on windows machines, VNC. I recommend TightVNC (http://www.tightvnc.com/). I have worked on an easy way to allow users a graphical login without having to make them run X servers on windows or manually setup a VNC session. It is documented at http://oxo.rucus.net/docs/Terminal-Vnc-HOWTO It is incomplete at the moment. All I need to do is clean up the presentation and grammar (I was always better at maths :), and insert instructions on use of KDE's Desktop Manager. -Ox -- /~\ The ASCII ASCII stupid question, get a EBCDIC ANSI. \ / Ribbon Campaign John Oxley X Against HTML http://oxo.rucus.net/ / \ Email! oxo <at> rucus.ru.ac.za "Personally, I'd rather pay for my freedom than live in a bitmapped, pop-up-happy dungeon like NT." -- Thomas Scoville _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
