OD vs AD

We have completely removed Active Directory from our authentication system. This means we no longer support native logins from Windows due to the instability of the operating system as a whole and the inherent security risks that come with allowing Windows computers to attach to the network.

We do however support Open Directory in which you can configure your Windows login to route through OpenLDAP.
