about client server structure on Linux 7.1

I have just installed RedHat 7.1 on HP Netserver as Server Operating System and same on PCs as workstation. My networking in working fine. I am able to talk to workstation from server and vice versa. But my problem is that i am not been able to get the log in to workstation systems with accounts that are created on server only. Can u please help me to find out easy documents to create Client Server System wholely on Linux (Like we use in Windows NT environment). Secondly please help to get the LAN browsing ICONs on desktop and Lan browsing like we do in WIN NT Platform.

Thanking You

what kind of 'browsing' are you after? if you mean the same kinda thing as networked drives etc... then you need to configure samba and check out all howto.

for the icons etc.. you may well want to look at LinNeighborhood.

p.s. PLEASE don't call it linux 7.1!! it's not! ;-)

You can also use nfs for to mount remote shares. They will show up in file browser(GMC, MC, konqueror, etc.) If you use Samba, there are several utilities to provide network neigborhood like traits.

If you are trying to duplicate the user domains in NT on Linux, you need to use something like NIS or NIS+. This is a tool that will effectively replicate the users to each member machine. Out of the box, each machine is stand-alone in respect to the users that are allowed to login.
