Got a couple of these lying around collect dust so if anyones looking for a OS for their network, here are the details.
Apple Mac OS X Server
10.5 Leopard - 10 Client
MB005Z/A - Factory Sealed Box
If you think it takes a dedicated IT department to deploy and use a server, think again. Leopard Server is designed so you can easily set up and manage servers..
Keeping it simple.
Leopard Server builds on Apples legendary ease of use with new Server Assistant and Server Preferences features that allow even nontechnical users to set up and manage a server in just a few clicks. Server Assistant walks you through the setup process and configuration of essential services. It runs a built-in Network Health Check to verify network settings and Internet connectivity. Using the new Server Preferences application, you can quickly manage users and groups on the server and set up key services such as file sharing, calendaring, instant messaging, mail, websites with wikis and blogs, virtual private networking for remote access, and backup settings for network clients.
Server Admin for advanced IT services
Advanced IT administrators can use Server Admin to set up, manage, and monitor advanced services. Completely redesigned in Leopard Server, Server Admin includes new file-sharing and permission controls, tiered administration, and options for organizing servers into smart groups.
Introducing iCal Server, the first calendar server for Mac OS X Server. Now its easy to share calendars, schedule meetings, and coordinate events within a workgroup, a small business, or a large corporation.
An easy schedule.
Does it sometimes seem like scheduling a meeting is harder than actually getting through the meeting? Using iCal Server, colleagues can propose and set up meetings, book conference rooms, and more, quickly and easily. iCal Server is a full-featured, standards-based calendaring solution designed to make your life easier.
Think of it as a one-stop shop for setting up calendar activities. Will everyone be free for a Monday morning meeting? Search for attendee availability and see just who is booked up. Need to reserve a projector, a particular conference room, or even a car? iCal Server can take care of that as well. Once the location and the time are set, iCal Server invites the right people and lets you include information such as agendas or to-do lists with the invitation.
Mac OS X Server makes it easy for groups to collaborate and communicate through their own wiki-powered intranet website complete with group calendar, blog, and mailing list.
Communication is key.
Whether its a small business or a workgroup inside a large corporation, all members need access to the same materials in order to work effectively. Wikis assist users in the clear exchange of information, eliminating confusion and ensuring that all members of a project have access to the resources they need.
The wiki blog is the perfect place for sharing team news and status reports or encouraging brainstorming. For shorter comments, theres a space at the bottom of the wiki page where users can share their thoughts or provide feedback. You have the ability to control who can add comments nobody, only authenticated users, or anyone who has access to the wiki. Teams can also use the wiki for file exchange uploading shared documents, images, or movies for distribution; even tracking revisions on documents. And shared calendars help users stay on track by ensuring that everyone can see meeting schedules and milestones.
Tired of looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack? Its now easier than ever to find content on network servers. Spotlight Server lets you search for documents, files, and other content stored on your server quickly and easily.
Find it fast.
Spotlight Server provides an instant way to find content on servers in your network. Designed for workgroups with shared documents, projects, and files, this new feature delivers lightning-fast search results for content stored on the server.
With richer Spotlight vocabulary in Mac OS X Leopard, now your searches can be even more exact. New options include Boolean logic, quoted phrase searching, category labels, and range support. Use search terms and search logic to create project-specific Smart Folders, so workgroups can always find their shared work, no matter where the files were actually saved on your server.
iChat Server brings the collaborative power of instant messaging to your organization. Now your workgroups can choose any number of ways to communicate among themselves or with others outside the group.
Your own private IM server.
iChat Server provides secure instant messaging for users on the network and can integrate with your organizations directory service for user account information. The directory also handles authentication, ensuring that whoever is logging in under an iChat name is really that person. And since all text messages and file transfers are encrypted, information sent through your server is kept secure and confidential.
iChat Server is based on Jabber, the industry-standard IM protocol also known as XMPP. This enables support for Mac computers using iChat, as well as for other Jabber clients running on Windows and Linux systems, PDAs, and even cell phones.
Persistent chat rooms.
With iChat in Mac OS X Leopard, users can request iChat Server to create and host a persistent chat room. Perfect for virtual team scenarios, project-specific discussions, and real-time blow-by-blow updates, the chat room allows individuals to join at any time, leave when they need to even log out and shut down and come back to review all communications since the chat room opened.
Mac OS X Server provides advanced tools for centralized management of users, groups, and computers in your organization.
Workgroup Manager simplifies system administration by providing centralized directory-based management of users, groups, and computers across your organization. For example, you can create standardized desktop configurations, set preferences, and establish password policies, as well as control access to hardware, software, and network resources.
Software update server.
By deploying a software update server, administrators can control how and when client computers download software, enabling access to approved software updates only. As the administrator, you now have time to evaluate and test software updates before deploying them throughout your organization.
Networking and VPN. To protect and to serve.
With Leopard Server, you dont need to be a networking expert to set up a bulletproof server for your organization. With Server Assistant and Server Preferences you can easily configure it safely and securely just the way you want.
A firewall is built into Mac OS X Server, making it easy to block unwanted communications to your server. With just a few clicks you can prevent connections outside your network from accessing your server and its services.
Secure private network access.
Virtual private network (VPN) access enables your users to take advantage of network services while theyre offsite and simultaneously prevent access
by unauthorized individuals. Leopard Server supports standards-based L2TP/IPSec and PPTP tunneling protocols to provide encrypted VPN connections for Mac and Windows systems and even Apples iPhone. These VPN services use secure authentication methods, including MS-CHAP and network-layer IPSec.
