Panther Server

Category : Technology/pantherserverreviewAFP548.txt

I was about to think that there's no point looking at the Panther (OS X 10.3) Server when even something that is so simple to do on a normal OS X machine, like sharing an Internet connection, seems so much harder to get right on a Panther Server machine.

But I found this article by Joel Rennich at and it's a very good review of the Panther Server. It's easy to miss a lot of the good stuff Apple had built into the Server version of OS X. There are a lot of things I didn't know OS Server could do, including the ability to extend the administrative capabilties of the system by writing plug-ins, if I hadn't read the article. So I'm making a link to it, in case I forget where to find it later.
