In order to get centralized logins to work on my Linux Debian computers

install libnss-ldap libpam-ldap.
Perform some configuration on the of /etc/libnss-ldap.conf and
/etc/pam-ldap.conf files.
Edit the /etc/nnsswitch.conf file.

Then I can check that the packages have been installed by issuing the
command nscd.

Finally to get authentication happening in specific applications, I go
to the directory /etc/pam.d/  and edit the service files there though
which I want such authentication to occur.

Now, of course, no one here is looking for instructions on how to do
something on Linux, but I was now wondering what it is I need to do on
my FreeBSD server to get this functionality working?  I can't seem to
find anything similar so far in my searches.

Thanks for any pointers in the right direction.

With FreeBSD 4.x, you won't get very far. But beginning with 5.x (not to
say 5.2.1-R), it's very similar. Install the following ports:


Edit /usr/local/etc/ldap.conf, build /etc/nsswitch.conf, and edit the
files within /etc/pam.d.

Taking into consideration that I want this server to be a Postfix server w/Courier IMAP and as stable as possible and the aforementioned, of course, which version of 5.x should I install?
