Description of Example Sites

In the first set of configuration examples we consider the case of exceptionally simple system requirements. There is a real temptation to make something that should require little effort much too complex.

??? documents the type of server that might be sufficient to serve CD-ROM images, or reference document files for network client use. This configuration is also discussed in ???, ???. The purpose for this configuration is to provide a shared volume that is read-only that anyone, even guests, can access.

The second example shows a minimal configuration for a print server that anyone can print to as long as they have the correct printer drivers installed on their computer. This is a mirror of the system described in ???, ???.

The next example is of a secure office file and print server that will be accessible only to users who have an account on the system. This server is meant to closely resemble a workgroup file and print server, but has to be more secure than an anonymous access machine. This type of system will typically suit the needs of a small office. The server provides no network logon facilities, offers no domain control; instead it is just a network-attached storage (NAS) device and a print server.

The later example consider more complex systems that will either integrate into existing MS Windows networks or replace them entirely. These cover domain member servers as well as Samba domain control (PDC/BDC) and finally describes in detail a large distributed network with branch offices in remote locations.
