An image always explain better than words - this is the basic (in this matter) of my network:
Alright, my ISP have "given" me a /29 subnet of public static IP's. Meaning I have 5 static public IP's for my needs
Server 1 is a ClarkConnect installation, configured to share folders with help from Samba. I can successfully access these folders from my Windows PC. Now, I would really like to use Server 2 (Debian Sarge) for shared folders. I plan on replacing ClarkConnect with a Pfsense (OpenBSD), and I guess it will be very difficult to have network shares on that box.
So my question is: How do I set up my Debian Sarge box with network folders that can be accessed from clients under Server 1? I'm not hoping for a full blown guide here, but a hint on what alternatives there are! Pros and cons, and maybe a link to good reading?
One guess (remember - I'm not a linux guru like many of you in here!) would be to use NFS with IPSEC? CIFS with OpenVPN? Do I need tunneling? Encryption? It's all just phrases I have picked up after reading and searching the whole day... It's not easy to figure out where to start...
So - thank you for *any* advices, they could all be valuable
