Question Apache-linux gateway to NT file server NEED SUGGESTIONS


I want to use my apache-linux webserver as a gateway to an NT file server. I've never done anything like this before and I could use some suggestions for setting this system up. Security is most important. If anyone can refer me to some examples that would be great. Any tips/information on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I do realize that I will have to use SAMBA to make this work.

What do you mean by gateway?
Code:
 WinNT
   |
 Samba  --- WAN
   |
   |
   |
  LAN

Code:
                WAN
                 |
                 |
            Gateway(linux-apache)
                 |
                 |
               LAN------------NT Server
Is the current setup
Although I would like to isolate the connection between the Gateway and the NT server (is it worth doing this?)

basically I want the Gateway Webserver to be able to access the NT file server allowing users to view/add/update files on the NT server via the web interface on the Gateway Webserver

Does this make sense?

I can see what you are trying to do.

You could isolate it on a seperate NIC connected to the Linux box but if your clients on the LAN also connect to shares (or as a domain) to the NT box I would leave it on the LAN as you will save your self a lot of problems.

There should be no problem in having the Gateway conenct to the NT box with your current setup.

Okay thanks.
But what I am looking for is a way to set this all up on the software side of things.

What would be the best way to go about this?
