I've never found time to focus on this topic, but I believe it is very
important. I discovered automount purely by accident. It wasn't until I
removed NIS that I learned that automount required NIS. I seem to recall
that it does (did) not work with NIS+, or something like that. I'm trying to
get all this straight in my head.
What are the various options available in SuSE 9.0 as regards NIS, NIS+,
Automount, NFS, etc. I.e., what versions and variants are available, and how
do they work together? What are the advantages and limitations of each?
What kinds of security is available with each? Can the entire data transfer be
encrypted? How. Can the authentication be encrypted or PKI based?
I know I could probably formulate more coherent questions. I'm just trying to
get some discussion going. I know LDAP, DNS, and DHCP can also play into this
topic, as can IPv6.
Hey, I just installed 9.0 for the first time on one of
my two home PCs. I clicked on the "Network" icon that
the installer automatically placed on the Desktop and
I got the message "smb:/ is not a valid file or
folder". Yet, if I open up Konqueror and type:
I can access the Windows XP shared network folders on
my other PC. What am I missing? Samba seems to have
been installed properly. Do I need to do something
with LiSA? Aren't they different things?
Thanks in advance for your time.
I am still new to linux and fumbling my way thru
things. Seems to me there has been some discussion of
using DSL with linux, but at the time I was not able
to get DSL where I live.
Just learned it is now available here.
Will someone point my in the direction of how to
access prior threads of discussions on this list (ala
DSL - especially on Verizon)?
