John Terpsta, Samba team and author
- John Terpstra,
a member of the Samba team, will talk about Samba
3.0. Samba, of course, is Linux's Trojan horse into the legacy world of
Windows desktops and servers---enabling Linux to both use and provide
file sharing, printing, authentication, security policy, etc. services
in a Windows-compatible way. John will talk about new and advanced
features, such as running Samba as the domain controller, unified
logins, setting security policies, etc.
John is a well
known Samba consultant and author (currently he's
finishing two books for Prentice Hall's Open Source series, 'Samba by
Example', and the comprehensive Samba HOWTO collection). Bring your
Samba questions: John probably knows the answer.
