Ok, got a Q for those familiar with Linux user authentication here...
Here is our recipe for disaster.
A dozen Win9x/XP workstations
1 Windows 2000 (Server) Server
1 Linux (RH) Firewall
Add a naive systems administrator (me two years ago). Mix in a office move,
and an overbearing PHB. Voila! A security disaster waiting to happen.
Basically our authentication is pathetic. A user signs on to the local
workstation, which is checked against the server when trying to access the
shared drive there. I'd *like* to set up some better authentication for
these Win9xP machines where the firewall would server as authenticator for
network access - at the time of user logon. i.e. no password = ACCESS
DENIED with loud horns and flashing lights on a 20x10 display.
Anyway, wondering if anyone has attempted such a feat? Anyone ever
PS Loud blaring horns, flashing lights and 20x10 display are optional...
