I have had great success with Panther Client and XP. The question is, can it manage Windows clients! 2004-01-22 12:44 am Of course the standard bitching (in the replys at slashdot) about the GUI interface getting in the way of doing real server administration. Personally, I think that any person who can’t find his way to the terminal in OS X Server has no business setting one up, much less administrating it, and/or bitching about it. 2004-01-22 12:57 am It can manage Mac, Linux, AND Windows clients. 2004-01-22 3:21 am Depends on what you mean by “manage” Windows clients? 2004-01-22 6:04 am Can you use login scripts, policies, push out software installations et cetra for Windows? Can CUPS push out Windows Printer drivers, redirect folders to network shares, use a distributed file system for shares, sync offline folders? Can you manage the server from a windows or linux client machine? 2004-01-22 6:11 am Yes, Yes, I don’t know, never tried. $ 2004-01-22 5:01 pm The URL below answers some of those questions http://www.admitmac.com/admitmac-vs-panther/index.shtml HTH, 2004-01-22 8:16 pm The reviewer has already stated that he doesn’t use Windows. Why harrass him with Windows clients ? By the way, there is no obligation for other servers to interact with Windows at all. That connectivity is only offered as a courtesy by the OS developers.
