Re: secure network file access

Hi Matt,
You may want to look at putting some kind of
vpn service on your samba box. Windows has a vpn client to
connect up. pptp is the basic but I hear the ipsec is better security.
You'll have to compile new kernels and software.
if you hunt at google, there a some pages out there that will 
help you setup your debian box for being a vpn server.
