File Server

Me and a partner are trying to set up a dedicated,headless file sever for a buisness however there are some constraints such as:
1:They must be able to login
2:It must not be over the internet
how do we do this
If your computer speaks English, than it was probably made in Japan.

Re: File Server

What do you mean by headless?

Are you trying to share files on a LAN or over the internet? I'm confused by your question.

Same here.

First thought:
A USB drive, with a label on it: "FILE TRANSFER PROTOCOL"

Put that in your pipe and grep it!

Re: File Server

It needs to be over a standard lan/wlan
and I didn't mean to type in headless

Setup a SMB share in *nix or Windows.

Re: File Server

Yeah, SMB is a built-in Windows feature, and isn't too complicated to implement.

If you're setting this up on a Linux box, you may want to look into NFS. It's also pretty easy to setup, and Windows has an NFS client, it's just not installed by default.

Just depends on which way works better for you. If you have more Windows machines, SMB is probably easier. If you have more Linux machines, NFS is probably easier.

apt-get update && apt-get install samba webmin sudo apt-get install tightvncserver xfonts-base xfonts-75dpi twm xterm

Re: File Server

I would look at freeNAS. I used it in a production environment and it worked really well.
