share network mountd drive


Hello all
After reading this:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...4/#post4417870

I am wondering, so is it ok to mount a server drive over the network and the re-share it (writeable) for some clients? If yes, are there any special precautions to be followed? Or is it just "mount over network" and ""share this directory" with permission to write?

Thanks and cheers
Roberto

Here's the (corrected version) of the post you cited:
Code:
mount -t smbfs -o "username=admin,password=admin" //192.168.1.1/share /tmp/share
In this instance, the "share" is exported by 192.168.1.1 (apparently a Windows machine). Local Samba clients can access it via the Linux "mount point" /tmp/share.

If another, different PC wanted to access the same share, they'd map to host 192.168.1.1 - not to your client.
