Question How to make linux take the logon authentication from my winnt server


that's what I am doing presently. Sorry for that.
Actually I am working in a firm where the logon server is winNT and I am the first guy in the company to work on Mandrake Linux 8.1 and the worst thing is that we don't have a Sys admin.
I am facing three problems
1. I want to make my linux machine take the logon process from the winnt server.
2. I want to Share the files with windows user. and Samba solved this problem for me. Many thanks to the SAMBA team
3. our comany is using Microsoft proxy server and i want to access internet on my linux machine. How to get the internet from the MS Proxy server in linux.

Thanks in advance

All right.

1. This is a tricky one. Unfortunately, I don't know of an EASY way of doing this. In fact, depending on what you mean by 'logon process' it might not be possible at all. However, the one thing that I can tell you is that it is possible to get a Linux machine to join an NT domain. It's not pretty and I'm not sure if it's really what you are wanting but it is possible. This process also depends on Samba as that is what is actually joining the domain. The first thing you have to do is add the Samba server to the Server Manager on the NT machine. NEXT, you have to set some options in your Samba config file.

Security =DOMAIN
Workgroup = <DOMAIN NAME>
Password Server= <PDC NAME> <BDC1 NAME> <BDC2 NAME> <etc>

Encrypt Passwords =YES

Finally you issue the join command:

smbpasswd -j <domain_name> -r <pdc_name>

You should get a reply similar to :
"smbpasswd: Joined domain <domain_name>


Hope this helps.

Cool Thanks but

Thanks ascii2k. and it did really worked fine.

But what i wanted was that the normal logon process of linux be handled by my winnt server and i can edit users and set there properties from the WinNT machine (ie pdc) also.

and second what i wanted was MS proxy client for linux

again thanks

Well, that's kinda what I thought you wanted and that is the part that I don't think is possible (yet). At least not that I know of. If you find a way to do this, PLEASE post it here.


As for the proxy, it shouldn't be hard to get a web browser to work. Under Netscape, you just go to the preferences page and pick proxies. Then you just enter the information. That's it.

Good Luck!

Thanks again

Thanks ascii2k but the main problem with Microsoft Proxy server is that it gives access on user bases (in our comany) and in linux i have to give IP address and port number and as in windows the request is handled by MS Proxy client so there is a sort of request response dialogs in between MS Proxy server and client.
and as we dont have any MS proxy client for linux so the proxy server dont give access to the internet for linux.

Thanks again

You can get linux to authenticate against an NT domain using WinBind. Have no idea how you do it but http://de.samba.org/samba/ftp/docs/h...s/winbind.html might help! I think you have to have a PAM'afied distro so if your on Slackware then you'll have quite a bit of work on your hands.

cheers
