As the first server platform to let Mac, Unix, and Linux users share files and printers out of the box, Mac OS X Server promises to revolutionize the world of network administration (or at least make it a whole lot easier). Here to make sure you don't get left behind is Mac OS X Server: Visual QuickPro Guide. In this task-based guide, veteran Mac expert Schoun Regan shows you how to manage local networks, navigate the Unix file system permission architecture, and administer Internet and Web services. You'll also explore the ins and outs of IP-based file sharing and printing services and learn about all that's new in the latest of Apple's big cats, Panther Server: improved setup, management, and monitoring capabilities; enhanced Windows integration; new workgroup and desktop management tools; and more. Clear, concise language, step-by-step instructions, and loads of visual aids mean that even beginners can get up to speed on Mac OS X Server--quickly and efficiently--with this guide.
