I have to setup a server with following requirements:

1. The server is based in US and the clients are in India
2. It should act as a file server and a backup server(RAID 5 used)
a. File server requirements
. Should be able to logon users
. Should restrict the users to a specific directory
. Simultaneous access by minimum 15 users.
————————————————————————
. Is it possible to have a remote samba server and clients in other place?
. Simultaneous access?
. My main concern is whether samba configuration is enough or i need to configure samba with LDAP.

Yes, but you need to secure the connection by something like a WAN link (e.g. VPN over Internet (see IPSEC VPN (freeswan) or SSL VPN (openvpn)). This is mandatory as CIFS is not secure.

. Simultaneous access?
No problem

. My main concern is whether samba configuration is enough or i need to configure samba with LDAP.
Both can work. samba alone can be managed easily till 50 – 100 users.

BUT
CIFS is NOT a good protocol to work over long distance connection : it’s a chaty protocol and latency will make it very slow to use. There is WAN optimisation appliance that can correct that it’s very expensive. RDU is online now  Reply With Quote Reply
