A new implementation guide is available for those of you who would like to deploy a ClearOS Content Filter using users and groups from Microsoft's Active Directory. The guide goes through the steps for deploying a ClearOS system in gateway-mode using the ClearOS Professional Active Directory Connector app. This tight integration provides a number of advantages for those running Active Directory on their networks:
- No need to use different tools to manage users and groups.
- Single sign-on support for the web proxy and content filter. A user only needs to login to Windows and there is no need to login again to access the web.
- Integration with other ClearOS apps too, for example, PPTP Server
