WHY NOT HAVE THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS?

For all those who talk of a war between Windows and Linux, there are others—like yourself—who ask, "Can't we all just work together?" As Windows & Linux Integration demonstrates, it's possible, and a lot easier than you think.

It doesn't matter whether you know Windows better than Linux or vice versa. This book shows you how to make the most of Linux in a Windows environment, and the most of Windows in a Linux environment. Written by two industry-recognized experts, one from the Windows world, one from the Linux world, they will guide you with practical, hands-on instruction and detailed examples that show you how to get the job done.

Coverage includes:

  • Welcoming Linux clients and servers into an existing Windows Active Directory
  • Integrating Windows clients into existing Linux directory services
  • Making Windows printers available to Linux clients—and vice versa
  • Integrating and unifying email services for Linux and Windows clients
  • Using Linux as a spam- and virus-killing machine to reduce Exchange's workload
  • Running Windows applications on Linux with VMware, WINE, Bochs, coLinux, and CrossOver Office
  • Using open-source porting projects to run Linux applications in Window
  • Integrating Linux DNS with Active Director
  • Creating web applications that work flawlessly on Linux and Windows clients
  • Setting up a universal locator service for finding files on Windows and Linux machines
  • Creating cross-platform, multi-user terminal servers using Windows and Linux servers for Linux and Windows clients
  • Remotely controlling Windows machines from Linux machines—and vice-versa

Synopsis:

Employing Windows and Linux within the same network is an attractive prospect for several reasons. While Windows offers a stable platform and solid support from Microsoft, it comes at a steep price in set-up costs, support contracts, and licensing fees. Conversely, Linux is free, but it can be tricky to set up and configure and lacks the sound support of, and user familiarity with, Microsoft products. System administrators who can configure Linux and Windows to work together will reap benefits not available in a single-platform network. Some organizations have migrated from Windows to Linux to control costs; but integrating the two platforms is an alternative that allows an administrator to leverage the best of both worlds.

Synopsis:

* Remotely controlling Windows machines from Linux machines-and vice-versa
