Got a (real/live) URL for these two? Sure, I could go look, but I'm

I was 'forced' to use NFS on external machines, mostly because that was
the easiest way to solve the problem. With a lot of IP-chains rules, I felt
'reasonable safe' but I still got a number of attacks (non successful luckily).

I would feel much safer if I could get a Network FS that is DESIGNED for
this use (which you say AFS is).
