Using Network/Library/Fonts

Posted:
in macOS edited January 2014
Hi, I have been receiving hell from the graphics department at my school because they all don't have the same fonts.



This looks like the simplest solution but the only problem is I do not have a Mac OS X Server...my school will not put out the money to buy a mac os x server. We do have a Windows 2003 Server though.



Is it possible to use this Network/Library/Fonts folder in a way with Windows 2003 Server?



Or is there a program that people have had very good success with that can help with this? Ideally I want to have it set up in a way that the user will not have to touch anything and will involve minimal if any constant updating from me besides placing new fonts in a folder on the server.



Thanks,

Matt

    This was previously built-into NeXTSTEP/Openstep (NFSManager) and a company has expanded upon it:
