I would like to ask people what they think is the best solution for
networking a windows/linux network.
Keeping in mind that the ultimate goal is to develop a linux only
network (but that that will not be accomplished anytime soon), I see 2
1. Install samba client on all linux user computers and have them
interact with the Windows network as if a Windows OS.
2. Install samba server on a single linux server. Map those Windows
drives that need to be shared out to Linux users to the linux server and
then remap them to each linux user. Actually, I don't even know if that
Although the first option might be the easiest, keeping in mind that
eventually there would be no windows computers, it would seem more
sensible to maintain and support just NFS among the Linux users.
Well, maybe I'm totally off here.
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
