Authbind cookbook


#1

So part of the Chef Hacknight in SF a few days ago I decided to finish up a small cookbook I had been working on for a while for Authbind, http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/386. I think its a clean way to use privileged ports without iptables which I feel is a bit “hack-y”. Its on github and you can find it here: https://github.com/zsiddique/authbind

I have not tested all the providers as we only use the one by port, and anyone is free to fork it and fix bugs.

Hi,

It seems great minds think alike. I wrote something very similar available at

http://community.opscode.com/cookbooks/authbind
https://github.com/realityforge-cookbooks/authbind

Yeah its very similar, maybe we can just merge the two to fill in the gaps.
