ADmitMac is a Mac OS X application that allows administrators to manage Mac computers in their Microsoft Windows domain.
Using the Directory Services and LDAP, the ADmitMac utility integrates Mac client systems into networks. In other words, the home directories can be stored and managed on Microsoft servers.
Also, the same account credentials can be used to login on the Mac or PC, with complete access to the files and folders.
Here are some key features of "ADmitMac":
- Client-based solution requiring no lock in to proprietary server software
