Please suggest solution for file server
I am rather new to Linux world, only couple of years. So, please bear with me when I ask something perhaps common sense etc.
I am looking for solution that would allow multiple users distributed over several offices in several countries to access one corporate file depository.
The features I am looking for, are as follows:
- There should be the way to establish user groups and then define for each folder access level (read/write) for every user/group. Every users is given his login and password.
- This file depository should be accessed from both Linux and Windows clients
- There should be a way how to sync certain folders/files on one's PC so that it is possible to work off-line and then sync back to the common depository.
Then I plan to launch some regular backup routine on that folder where all the files of depository are kept.
I can imagine that the solution could be involving several tools, ie access for Windows users might involve setting up samba server, but I don't know how to establish all the limited access stuff for Win clients via samba.
I'll be thankful for any ideas that would help me get started on this.

LDAP, SAMBA, and "Back in Time".
LDAP handles user account information.
SAMBA handles CIF filesystem access to the Linux subtree.
Back in Time -- Backup software
Other things would be software RAID and/or LVM for reduancy and expansion.
