nfs vs coda
I am currently using NFS on my home network of 6 computers all of which are pentium 2 or less exept one which is a 1.4ghz athalon. It seems to me that nfs might be quite insecure as anyone witht he same user id as me would be able to login to my account.. is that right? I notice that coda is said to be a more advance system is this true?
Admittedly, I haven't used Coda. However, on 2.6 kernels, you can compile support for NFS RPC security. The only actual authentication method they have implemented so far is for Kerberos, which means that to use it, you would have to use Kerberos authentication on your network. Don't get me wrong, though - Kerberos is really great, I use it myself on my network. However, it can really take some time to get into and set up.
