I have a question regarding NFS. I know the general rule is to choose
either security _or_ NFS. But if your site has a firewall (say based on TIS
fwtk) installed and properly configured, does having NFS filesystems
floating around on the internal network still pose a security risk? We want
to use a source code control system that uses NFS to do it's work between
platforms (i.e. PC's on a Novell network and one or more unix boxes for
developing client-server applications) but from lurking on this list, I
have come to the belief that NFS and security mix like oil and water. Could
someone clue me in?
Please Email me direct because I am only on the digest list and it seems to
be a little unreliable. Thanks in advance.
