question about users and multiple servers
To start with, I'm fairly new to linux. I migrated about seven months ago from win to lin (fedora core).
I'm involved in a wifi network. This started as a hobby network for those who can't connect to the internet with xDSL or cable. This network has grown over the last few years from 4 to 75 users. We have a server for File, mail, web & ftp running on windows. This server will migrate to 2 linux servers in the next few months (one service at a time, later if needed more servers will be added) One server wil serve the website and ftp while the other runs e-mail and fileservices.
We want to make it possible for users to have an own homepage, e-mail account, ftp site and userspace. If the user logs in (LDAP) on the fileserver, we want the user to see a few subdirectories:
* /pool (for network wide availlable files)
* /ftp (read only, www availlable files)
* /homepage (/home/<user>/public_html
* /eigenftp (own ftp like homepages)
Is this possible and what would be the best way to do this?
