I have a few questions about setting up some domain servers.
1. DHCP - Is there a graphical interface for this?
2. DNS - Is there a graphical interface for this? And do I have to include netbios on windows machines?
3 - VPN - What is the most secure method of connecting to a linux network, when connecting from windows machines?
4. *ldap* - I want to utilize a slack server as my primary domain controller (for a new domain), is openLDAP the best way to go when the secondary servers will be windows boxes? Reason is that I want to use the active directory tools to maintain the network. Minus the technologies I mentioned above of course.
5. Where do i find detailed info about some hefty networking in linux. Such as: Roaming Profiles, Remote Access, Centralized Administration, Server Log viewing and Mainenance, and the such?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, I have been searching my way through this for a few months, but would like to get it implemented, within the next couple of days.
