Cheap disk & low cost hardware and the NFS share can Hmm... is there a way to do this securely? NFS is notorious for weak security (though probably not more so than SMB). I'm not sure if a machine can run NFS securely on an internet-accessible interface. I would like to try it but it seems thorny. Here is an example of what I would like to do *securely*: internet firewall | hub--bastion host (iSeries exporting some directory) | internal firewall | hub | clients (NFS mount directories from iSeries) Can this be done in a secure fashion?
