Unix, general networking

I am used to setting up server machines with Linux.  All machines are pretty much stand alone and static IP's.  I do not work with any Domains, outside of a broadcast domain

In Windows, under Active Directory, there is a master / slave relationship in setting of permissions

Is there a similar concept with Linux machines, or is that pretty much a concept just for MS workstations

    Accepted Solution

    Kerberos realm in UNIX is basically the same as Active Directory which also used the Kerberos protocol. Which exists since the 80's and supported by pretty much all UNIX/Linux flavors out there, including Mac.

    You can mix everything in all directions with it.
