re using samba on internet
how much safe you think samba is if used over the internet, we have a server over the internet and we want to use samba so that our office users using laptops and always on the move from one place to another can access using file browser in windows. will it be safe to implement samba with password authentication over the internet.
re using samba on the internet )part quatro)
I was reading this post and thought I would throw in my two cents (I expect change) Anyway, the solutions these users are presenting you are good frrom two stand points. Look at it like this, the time it takes your admin (whatever you call them) to integrate a new software solution into the servers architecture will not be cost effective compared to buying a VPN in the box and integrating that into the network. Your looking at researching the best possible software solution for your server and then putting into production. That means DAYS! As far as going to a retail / wholsale store and buying a new VPN Solution from Netgear or Linksys and integrating that your talking about HOURS not DAYS. Question is, how much money you got?
