comment Linux + LDAP/ActiveDirectory: Can't create a private group for the user like “username:username”
The UID values don't have to change - you can manually set the UID values in AD once you've installed the SFU extensions.

What is the question you're asking? It's not entirely clear what the question is.

comment Unable to connect remotely to custom application
Ok, so you're not listening on localhost, you're listening on 0.0.0.0, which is "all interfaces". So far, so good. I suspect the issue is with the host firewall, which is why I asked for the iptables output.

That should be ok for the netstat output, but we really need the full output of iptables -L. You can add the full output by simply editing the original question.

Can you post the output of netstat -tuln and iptables -L on the machine the service is listening on?

Then those applications are listening on the external interface as well. If you listen only on 127.0.0.1 (localhost), you can only connect to whatever is listening from that machine itself.

If it's only listening to localhost, you'll never be able to connect to it from a different host. It needs to listen on the external interface.

comment Is it safe to disable shell access to all users listed in /etc/passwd?
Not quite. Even without a valid password, I can su to the bin user from root and get shell access. I have no direct login access to the bin user, though, which is what is important.
