You can't use SSPI authentication which I assume you're talking about as it's not supported on Linux, so you're down to pserver,sserver and ssh - They'll still need to login, though. If security is an issue I recommend sserver or ssh. The samba developers have spend years making their software interoperate seamlessly. There isn't a realistic hope of cvsnt using this method of authentication as it's all tied into the samba core and not in a state that can be used. You could also bypass the whole authentication and setup gserver/kerberos authentication, but running a linux server against AD is nontrivial (it seems to work as a client, but the server generally fails.. Someone with enough AD/Kerberos experience may be able to get it going though). Tony
