Point me in the right direction
Well let me start off by saying I have always come to this site for my linux questions for years. But lets get to the point why I am posting today. I know the info is out there, and most likely here just not sure on how to word the search term or what to look under. I want to pull my windows network down and move over to 100% linux. But the thing is that I want a network login at startup like windows, server would auth, and what permissions the user has before login. Basically same idea as windows network login but I would like to do this through linux. I am not going to use any windows shares or anything else on my network with windows. I want to be 100% linux.
Could someone please point me in the right direction to learning about this or a good book on this area. Not asking for this to be done for me, I want to learn this on my own.
Thanks in advance.
