About likewise

Post by Juan_Carlos » Wed Mar 01, 2017 2:54 pm

Hello everybody, recently I had a very annoying problem because it was changed the proxy in my work and the new on (squidproxy and kerberus) doesn't allow to navigate from my Mint 18.1 system (a time ago it was no problem only with the user + password). In this new proxy you HAVE to get into de domain in order to use internet navigation... So I began to research and found out likewise-open and samba, but the second one is more difficult to configure (I'm not an expert in Linux) so I decided to install likewise, but when I tried to find it in the repo it wasn't there... I use Mint 18.1 who's built in the Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial repo... so, could anybody help me about installing and using likewise-open in Mint 18.1?

As usual thanks to any possible answer and excuse my english...

That package is really outdated ... there hasn't been a ubuntu package since 12.04 ... and not supported. I'd suggest looking for an alternative.
