Re: security concerns for home work network
I have a small home office network. I recently set up samba and in the
process realized I'm not all that honed on security issues. My concern
is this, when I set up something like filesharing, I'm just doing this
for the efficiency of my two person software development company; the
other employee is my wife. In this environment, I generally just set
things up as loose and quick as possible.
It is not very difficult to tighten samba up a bit. Simply list your
wife's computer in a "hosts allow = <computer name>" line in the
'[global]' section of your smb.conf file.
As Andrew has mentioned, your setup is probably ok as long as you don't
have any ports forwarded into your lan. But for anything else, better
safe than sorry ;-)
