Mac OS X Server v10.3, 10-Client
With Mac OS X Server v10.3, Apple has integrated popular open source software technologies and created innovative management tools to make it easy to provide powerful standards-based server solutions. With over 150 new features, including centralized directory and authentication for Mac and Windows clients, Mac OS X Server is a comprehensive platform that is ideal for corporate and educational institutions. This 10-client edition of Apple's award-winning UNIX-based server operating system is the easiest way to deploy powerful Internet, network and small workgroup services.
Cross-platform file and print services
Native file and print services for Mac, Windows and Linux are built-in so you can give everyone access to storage space on the server and shared Postscript and raster (inkjet) printers.
Directory services and authentication
Mac OS X Server features Open Directory 2, a robust, scalable directory services architecture based entirely on open standards. The integrated authentication authority uses Kerberos to provide strong authentication and single sign-on to authorized network resources. Open Directory also features integrated PDC services--using Samba 3--for providing Windows workgroups with login and authentication services, roaming profiles, and network home directories.
Mac OS X Server adds an intuitive interface to the open source Apache web server, making it easy to host reliable, high-performance websites. Strong 128-bit encryption and realm-based authentication provides high-grade security for e-commerce solutions and intranet sites.
With the built-in JBoss application server and full support for JSPs, Java Servlets, SOAP and XML-RPC, Mac OS X Server provides a complete solution for hosting Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications. It also features powerful deployment tools that simplify configuration of application resources and EJB components.
QuickTime Streaming Server and QuickTime Broadcaster provide an end-to-end solution for live encoding and streaming digital media. The new QTSS Publisher application makes it easy to hint media, create and edit playlists, and push content out to the streaming server from any Mac OS X Panther system.
The comprehensive, easy-to-use mail services in Mac OS X Server are based on popular open source projects, including Postfix, Mailman, and SquirrelMail. Full support for Internet mail protocols ensures compatibility with standards-based mail clients on Mac, Windows, and Linux systems, and built-in SSL/TLS encryption provides secure mail transport.
Workgroup Manager simplifies directory-based management of network environments with an intuitive interface for managing user identities, group relationships, computer settings, and access to network resources. Innovative system imaging capabilities in Mac OS X Server streamline system deployment and software distribution.
Networking and security
Core network services in Mac OS X Server--including DNS, NAT, DHCP, and Firewall--are integrated into the Server Admin utility, making it easier to set up and secure your local area network. Using L2TP and PPTP tunneling protocols, the VPN server supports encrypted, authenticated IP connections for Mac, Windows, and Linux clients.
Industry-leading tools for secure remote administration make services easy to set up and manage from any Mac OS X Panther system, anywhere on the Internet. Server Admin provides a graphical user interface for configuring and monitoring network and Internet services, and support for SSH2 enables secure remote administration from the command-line.
