Do you want to add the linux server as an FTP server or a windows file server?

You can do the latter by installing and configuring Samba. Which would allow windows shares via UNC paths as well as AD authentication.

Hi,

It's not something I've ever looked into. The only thing I can think of would be using LDAP authentication between the FTP server and the AD. There's probably a much more streamlined solution, so I'll leave it to some other expert to advise you.

Best of luck and sorry I can't be of more help
