SharePoint Products and Technologies on TechNet


At the TechNet's new site for Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies, you'll find technical resources, tools, and other information designed to help IT professionals deploy, maintain, and support SharePoint Products and Technologies.

As for non-Microsoft SharePoint resources (where there are tons of them), i will start with the WSS FAQ. Is it the ultimate FAQ for Windows Sharepoint Services. It is created originally by Mike Walsh but right now it is a collaborative contribution from the community.

I will be posting more resources related to SharePoint Products and Technologies.

The NTLM Authentication Protocol

This article seeks to describe NTLM at an intermediate to advanced level of detail, suitable as a reference for implementors. It is hoped that this document will evolve into a comprehensive description of NTLM; at this time there are omissions, both in the author's knowledge and in his documentation, and almost certainly inaccuracies. However, this document should at least be able to provide a solid foundation for further research

Desktop Deployment
