Samba, Web Server, Dual Homed (am I asking for it?)
Is it possible to set up a server that:
- run apache and associated web site stuff accessible via the public
- run Samba and have it accessible via an internal network, primarily for transferring files from the linux box to a set of Windows machines
- and do this on a dual homed machine?
Or is this asking for it? Have always been cautioned that a dual homed server, especially into a windoze environment, is a train wreck waiting to happen. Are there enough checks and balances to protect the uploaded files via the internet/Apache side and still give access via a second NIC card via Samba to these files?
Any opinions would be highly valued.
