    access samba from web?


    Is there any way to access samba, or even my network at home, from my computer at work? I know this is a vauge question. I am able to access my box via SSH from a remote location, but thats about it. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    How about Secure Copy. If not, how about VPN or a remote terminal using FreeNX?

    My personal solution is to use key-only SSH and forward all port traffic for other stuff over that (including my web proxy, so if I need to look at anything on ebay or on recruitment agency websites without being tracked by the company proxy, I can)

    I use VNC on my LAN and view remotely at work, I can also use rsync and I tried FreeNX, but that likes to make its own connections, so I went back to VNC.

    I really like FreeNX since you only have to open one port for both SSH and FreeNX as well as the certificate based encryption. Just my opinion. I don't have to worry too much about the corporate proxy since I'm the Systems Administrator
