Connecting to My Windows Domain


Good day. I have an older laptop at my work that just doesn't do too good with Windows XP and later. So I've installed Kwort OS on this laptop. How can I (if there is a way) get this system to join my Windows domain and be able to connect to the various in-house servers?

Thank you for any help you can provide!

Mark

Samba should do the trick. Samba can act as a domain controller or a domain member. Swat is a web configuration tool thats pretty easy to use. Samba is usually (Often) installed by default, but swat has to be installed manually.

Where do I find SAMBA on my computer and how do I run it?

I've never tried your distro, so you might have to install it. Anyways, you should have a configfile /etc/smb.conf or /etc/samba/smb.conf
Before use use swat, make a backup of this file, as swat overwrites it.

Samba is using smbd and nmbd to operate (In adition to smbclient and some other applications). I'm not sure if smbclient is enough to be a member of a domain, or if you will need smbd/nmbd. Where they are located depends on distribution. Probably something like /usr/sbin
