I currently have a 3TB hard disk attached to my RPi running a samba server which several family laptops/PCs using Aomei backup to.
My plan is to allow internet access for these machines to continue back up their incremental backups when they are not local.
I see that allowing the samba to be internet accessible is a very bad idea, so I have researched some options:
- Samba (discounted)
- sshfs (not being updated)
- ftp (not secure, slow)
- VPN + samba (complicated, might be over the top)
Before I get started testing out each of these methods, does anyone have any warnings, preferences or suggestions? I need to be able to continue these backups from windows machines!
