I am running a couple Mac computer labs and have everything set up except logins. We are using an Xserve with OS X Server 10.4 and Open Directory for the logins. My problem is this: when I try to log into each computer from the OS X login window, the login process times out. As far as I can tell, the LDAP server settings are correct on the server, and they are set in Directory Access on the client machines. Neither I nor a technician we hired can figure out what's up.
Using tcpdump, I have verified that the computer is attempting to communicate with the server, but nothing shows up in the server logs. Any idea where I should look or any other information needed? I can post logs and such if necessary...just tell me what info you need. I am desperate to get this working as we are in the third week of school and students still can't login using their own accounts.

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks

There are a number of freaky settings when it comes to maintaining a server based setup.

You might want to do research at AFP548 and take a look at articles such as this one. Another site, which I'm less familiar with, is http://macenterprise.org
