Headless Encrypted File Server Setup
I'm setting up a headless file server on my home network. Its running NX for administration and Samba for windows shares.
P3 Coppermine 1.0ghz
450+ GB HDD Space (i know, not much)
HP Travan Tape (wont work, grrr!)
My goals are.
1. No Keyboard/Mouse/Monitor -SUCCESS!-
Works with NX. Does have problems accessing certain things
like network control panel in Gnome. Won't let me unlock but
2. SAMBA -SUCCESS!-
Works except for WINS, have to connect to the
server by IP. I think I firewalled it out. I also have to use
a different l/p for shares, my server 2003 system account is
3. Remote Wakeup/Shutdown when idle -SOMEWHAT-
WakeOnLan works (finally!). Have not looked into shutdown at
idle and things like that yet.
4. Encryption -FAIL!-
I want to set the server to only allow the SMB connection
over encryption, even on the local intranet. I don't want to
run any extra software on my Server 2003 machine to connect
so I'm stuck with microsoft supported things. Originally
wanted SSH but its not supported.
So what should I use?
IPsec? L2tp? Poptop? Openswan? ipsectools? How do I set them up?
