Simple Windows primary domain functionality supported?

    I have a small office and would like to consolidate server operations
    that currently running on multiple computers. The servers I am
    currently using are:
    1. Primary Domain Controller
    2. Web Server
    3. FTP Server

    I would like to purchase a LinkSys WRT54GL router, and replace the
    provided firmware with one that provides the functionality of a:
    1. Primary Domain Controller (PDC)
    2. Web Server
    3. FTP Server

    By reviewing information on this forum I believe that the FTP and Web
    servers can be accomplished, but unclear about the PDC.

    My expectations of a PDC are:
    O Mimic simple Windows NT/2000/XP primary domain functionality
    . Create user IDs
    . Allow read/write/delete access to different computer shared folders

    If it does not currently perform this operation,
    would you please make a recommendation/suggestion of a workaround?

    i think you should look towards OpenWRT, but you are asking a lot of a $50 device

    The wrtsl54gs *MIGHT* be able to do what you want (with some customization) since it includes a samba server.
