Question Problem in connecting and authenticating linux clients with windows server

I have windows 2003 server loaded in my windows server as an operating system.I have also wfilter working as a domain controllerfor.Wfilter is monitoring the clients logged into the domain.The problem is Wfilter is not been able to recognize the linux clients.It is also not being able to do NET BIOS scan of the linux clients as a result these linux clients are not been monitored and therefore no security policies can be applied on them.My question is "is there any way to bring these linux clients into the Windows domai so that the domain controller can monitor them?".

eagerly waiting for the solution.

With Regards

sounds like you might have WFilter misconfigured or your network misconfigured. from a fast read on their web site WFilter is a web filter that works through a gateway. So if your Linux workstations are not using the win2k3 server as their internet gateway, then it will never filter any of their traffic.

Unhappy please be elaborate

can you please be elaborate.I could not get you.If WFilter is installed properly,then is it possible to monitor and impose various policies on linux clients.
