Talking wanted to access the samba share drive from my home..


Hello,

I have installed the samba and created successfully SAMBA SHARE DRIVE, and it is working perfectly in my office.

Now my clients wanted to access the samba share drive from outside the office premises..

they will be using the windows platform

and my server is Centos 6.6

Please suggest me something , so that we both can work out.

If it is already working in the office have them VPN in and it should still work.

I recently found this piece of software:
http://www.expandrive.com/expandrive

It lets Windows users map a remote SSH (SFTP) server to a drive letter for local access. It's not free, but the license fee is pretty reasonable IMO.

VPN would work too, but VPN is a major PITA in my experience.

Another suggestion is WinSCP and filezilla. They are windows sftp clients applications and if your clients are configured in a jailed environment will only have access to the windows share directory if desired. Your not using samba per se.

You can also use the same applications if running windows except use your own username. If running linux most file browsers have built in sftp capability or you can use sshfs to mount a particular directory.

samba doesnt allow you to mount across networks. i use sshfs on my xbmc box so i can stream my movie collection while i am on the road (not sure what the windows equivalent would be).
