Re: [K12OSN] Authenticating existing users with K12Linux



Just did some more testing.  

nmap shows port 389 (ldap) open on SME Server whether or not it's acting as a domain controller.  

When configured as a domain controller, I was able to join the domain from a debian system with samba installed.  LDAP is properly configured (I think) on the debian system, but 'getent passwd' does not return any of the SME Server usernames.
