using pam or something with samba for password authentication from xp to suze 9.1
Posted on 2004-10-13
we are currently using windows xp and get to linux server files through samba.
we managed to succesfully implement pam onto our webserver for password authentication
now we want to do the same thing through samba where passwords are authenticated through the linux etc/password file
were kinda new to samba and the documentation in samba.conf is a little confusing
there might be a very simple way to do this
ive read about pam_smb .. but this seems to only work with NT (or 95 or 98)
and ive also read about winbind ... im not sure if this works with XP.
any suggestions would be very appreciated.
