Re: [K12OSN] Authenticating existing users with K12Linux



SME Server uses LDAP for its user authentication (as far as I understand it), so you should be able to authenticate K12Linux off of it.  However, I set it up and tested it a couple weeks back and I couldn't get my Debian machine to authenticate.  I'm not sure if I was doing something wrong, or if SME's LDAP configuration is different than other OpenLDAP systems I've set up in the past.

Is there a K12Linux how-to or install instructions somewhere that would help us or will it be self-explanatory once we do the install? Do we need to maintain indentical users/passwords on both machines or can we sync both together? Is there a better distribution than SME for doing this?
