Hi! I need sime kind of network file system which has a FreeBSD server and Windows clients (particulary Windows XP) and that FreeBSD file share must be mounted on Windows XP under a drive letter. Windows client is FAR FAR away and is behind nat. Traffic costs a lot, so that file system must not waste it for nothing. Of course, security is very important and security based on IP address is impossible, because client is behind nat.
I have checked the following: 1) Samba3 I think i could use it with user security (not share or maybe mixed) but i am not sure about making it open to internet and also i think it wastes bandwidth. Am i wrong? 2) Coda FS Nice thing, but i could not figure out how to manage user passwords and there is no working windows xp client. I tried it - not luck for me. 3) AFS No idea is AFS Windows client exists and no FreeBSD server. 4) NFS Well, i like it very much because we use for freebsd file shareing since year 2000. Hoever, i could not find free NFS client for Windows (but, hell, i'll buy it) but what's worse i get figure out how to make authorizartion based on user/password and not on /etc/exports. I need something more secure. Also, am not sure about bandwidth usage. Any help will be very appriciated. Regards, Artem Kuchin General Director of IT Legion Ltd.
