--NOTE: For those not familiar with the product netcon, it allows
Dos, Win95 and NT computers access FreeBSD as a file server using
I am considering to use Netcom for a small Lan, however I will need
to have computers in different locations access a server. I was told
by the makers of netcom I would need an IPX router. Couldn't I use
something like NFS to remotely mount a directory?
Basically what I have in mind is:
-Netcom on location A
-Netcom on location B
-Mount directory from location A on location B
-Give access to users in location B to remotely mapped directory
Any better approaches/suggestions?
I am thinking of netcon because the users will be connected using
Dos, win95 and possibly NT in the near future.
What would be a secure way of doing this? Could one computer dial
directly to the server to mount a directory? Could this be done
safely through the internet?
