Using OpenLDAP For Authentication
Mandrake Secure tells us how to use
use OpenLDAP for authentication.
"User authentication for logins is generally a no brainer. You setup
users on the local system and off you go... nothing to it. However, if
you're on a LAN and you want to have a centralized "repository" of users, you will likely be looking at some method of distributing user information
across the LAN. This has a few distinct advantages, the primary being all
user authentication is centralized."
