Sharing applications on leopard server
I am running Leopard Server in my office. We have 3 macbook pro client machines that currently use it to share files.
I am wanting to use the servers full potential.
1. I want users to have to log onto the server environment of a morning (Currently they just connect to the wireless network)
2. I want users to be able to access applications that are installed on the server. Such as Project x, address book, steel etc. It would be great if users could access these applications and collaboratively work on projects rather than having the applications installed on each client machine and them working individually.
3. Lastly I have external clients using windows machines who i would like to grant restricted access to the server for file sharing. Is this possible?
A standard configuration was chosen when installing leopard server and all clients have a username set up within directory on the server.
Any suggestions on how to implement either of these three points would be greatly appreciated.

On Tiger Server you use Directory Access on each client to put your server IP in the 'LDAP' bit. Then, when ever someone logs in on that client, it'll check your Open Directory for their username and password. Open Directory can also be used to set up each users home area and share points.
I don't do application sharing. At first, somehow, users on the network could run apps off of my machine. It was deathly slow. So, now I install apps directly on each machine. However, they still have a 'Shared' area so they can easily collaborate on work.
There's an option to enable Windows machines connecting somewhere. Once that's on, Windows machines can access shares/home areas with the correct username and password by entering the server IP into windows explorer.
Where are we? What the hell is going on? --Hide And Seek, Imogen Heap
