Authenticating Mac OS 5.x and 6.x against edirectory

First, let me say that using Kanaka will not accomplish what we need based on the current Mac user set up.

Second, I have poured over the documentation that was presented several years ago as to how to do this with NW 6.5 and OS X 3 and 4. There was at one point some documentation for 10.5 and 10.6 but that site now shows as on vacation and the information is gone.

Surely someone has done this with OES11 sp1 and Mac OS X 10.5 and above. If so, I sure could use some pointers as to how to get this done.

Thanks in advance.

Firstly can I check you mean OS X 10.5.x & 10.6.x and NOT Mac OS 5.x & 6.x
as you put for the subject - if the subject is correct then you're
definitely on your own there!

If OS X 10.x.x then I've connected Mac OS X 10.5 & 10.6 to OES11 SP1 - I
did a session during BrainShare 2010 which covered OES2 SP3 but the steps
are largely the same for OES11 SP1. My slides are on SlideShare @
http://www.slideshare.net/NOVL/integrating-apple-macs-using-novell-technologies

Feel free to post questions here, now starting to find my feet again
following BrainShare.

HTH.

Yes, I did mean OS X 10.5.x and 10.6.x. I was typing faster than I was thinking.

Anyway, thanks for the link to the presentation. Most useful and it looks like it will help me with what I need to do.
