Ftp & Nfs


I currently have an FTP server that is almost at full capacity. I have a spare drive on another machine that I would like to use for more FTP drive space. Is there anything that is preventing me from setting up a share on the FTP server that uses an NFS share as part of it's directory structure? What are the potential risks associated with this?

Any help is much appreciated.

Ryan

The potential risks lie with NFS usage in general AFAIK. If you would follow SOP to secure the NFS server, ideally have it on a private net behind the DMZ where the ftpd resides and only allow access from the ftpd's IP I'm sure that would curb risks somehow.
