    Slackware 13.37 + ftp server + Active Directory integration...


    Hello everyone,

    I have installed a full version of Slackware 13.37 in order to make an ftp server for my company. The company is Windows based so most of the servers are windows but I would like to import the Linux option. Since its up to me, I chosen Slackware that is the distro that I have used more in the past.

    So, I have installed Slackware, recompiled the vsftpd with ldap module. Ftp is working fine with local accounts, so my concern is to have AD integration in order to avoid the local accounts that my supervisor will reject for sure.

    Any ideas on how to proceed from this point on? I have read a lot of stuff that confused me. Do I need PAM? Do I need anything else? What I would like firstly, is to point me to the right way (need to install this and this and that) and I'll try to find out how to complete it.

    Thanks in advance,
    Argi.

    You want to use winbind, which is part of samba, not openldap.
