I'm sure a lot of you are aware that Netware had a way to disable
broadcasts, which OES linux doen't currently have. I'd like to turn off
broadcasts, and some research has turned up a way to do it (below). If I
configure iptables to drop traffic on 524, won't that screw up
eDirectory's ability to communicate (it uses 524)? Thanks,

You can always block outgoing NCP traffic with an iptables script...
iptables -A OUTPUT -o eth0 -p tcp --dport 524 -j BLOCK

you can put that in a file then change the permissions on the file to
executable by root with

chmod 700 file

then run the file...

Outside of that, i dont know any other way to disable the broadcasts...
