    Default active directory groups - need feedback

    We're looking into supporting active directory groups...
    Just wondering

    Do you have nested groups in your active directory configuration?

    In what way are you planning to support them?

    Is this going to be a feature that we can apply racks based on group membership? If so, is it going to be a setting that can be applied in AD? I think this would be great!
    Vote here to have wireless included in Untangle.

    Groups would be a great addition to the ad connector or policy manager. Has anyone thought of trying to implement RADIUS authentication? Just a thought.

    Keep up the good work I know you guys have been busting your asses this Q.

    This would be greatly welcomed by large enterprise, especially school districts.

    Yes, we do. Many!
    Think of the schools. In our case 1 organisation, under which 5 schools, multiple departments per school.
    Employees are divided into (one or more) groups based on department and function.
    Students are divided into (one or more) groups based on year, department, classes, sub-classes.
    Nested in that order, and subject to many changes and relocations during the course of a year.
    Our Current Platform [INACTIVE Until further notice - finally in a new building!]
    ---------------------------------
    Intel Desktop Board type D865GVHZ + Intel P4 3.0Ghz HT, 2GB Dual-channel RAM, 40GB HDD, 3x3Com 309x 10/100 PCI, 3Mbit 4 to 1 Business Cable, roughly 500 users and 220 machines and growing.

    This would be a much needed addition. I have our AD broken out in Staff then the students in groups based on graduating year. This would make it very helpful. Thanks.

    also consider Opendirectory (Mac) or Edirectory(Novell) or iDirectory(Ibm LDAP), using the method PROACTIVENS mentioned. I dont know if this would be relevent or not, it deals with setting up ISA Server to use this kind of authentication for proxy access.

    While you're looking at groups... consider OU as well.
