Re: Converting to Debian

Hi Ben,

I agree with John about using one of the standard FreeBSD NetBSD and OpenBSD 
but that aside I would recommend exporting your password database into 
an LDAP database. You can find more info at :


I am not sure about the nss situation in the BSD varieties but that Debian 
Linux can be easily configured to use LDAP for authentication and naming. I 
would recommend taking a look at the DebianISP mailing list archives and 
subscribing to that mailing list for exellent ISP related discussions.

Cheers, Fred.

Fred Clausen.
