I'd like for my core to also be the main home server and eliminate other power hungry servers. So I'd like the core to handle client authentication (as a samba pdc) and better firewall / security / privacy / parental control. However, I don't want to break lmce or cause upgrade incompatibilities as the old pluto code still seems entangled with the underlying kubuntu.
Please share any recommendations / experiences you've had in modifying the core dcerouter networking configs.
In several previous installs, I attempted to change some things with bad results.
Current setup is running OK with core at 192.168.2.1 (changed default). (some of the help in the webadmin is not found - and I suspect this change may be the cause).
I'd also like to change the dcerouter smb & hostname (from dcerouter to something_else) and the workgroup from linuxmce to schafer (which is my house net default). Will this break anything or will it be reset by the lmce database? And it would also be nice if the media directors (moonxx) could be in the same workgroup as well rather than the "pluto" workgroup.
Bottom line minimum would prefer to have all clients in the same workgroup with samba primary domain controller and dans guardian content filter on the core.
Please your experiences.
And if the best answer is to run ipcop or something on a dedicated box upstream from the core (192.168.1.1), and that samba pdc is better off on it's owe 'buntu server (192.168.2.10). That's good to know as well and is my current and default setting.
