FTP vs NFS vs SAMBA
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 27, 2011
I was wondering what is the pest solution to my problem. I have a server which will be mainly to store files but also as a web server for internal use(not to host public web-sites). I had problems with the software raid 1 so for that i make second thoughts on using an external raid 1 device connected to the server via usb(Any advice on that?). Now i need to access my files remotely, in the local network or when i am in a different physical location, over the internet. Now i found out the easiest way is through FTP but i am also investigating solutions like NFS and Samba. NFS is not much compatible with windows and that could be an issue, but what about Samba? and also, if i go with Samba will i need to set up a VPN server for that? What is your opinion? (also for security issues i considered sftp but i actually dont like that user can see files from root / )
SSH vs FTP on Wifi Network Speed?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 15, 2009
Hi. I have been setting up a local network. All units use 802.11g for communication: OS X 10.6 (Mac), Ubuntu 9.10 (PC) and an Apple AirPort Router.
Here is the issue. Although I read everywhere that FTP should be faster than SSH, I cannot confirm that in my own tests. So far, it seems like SSH is actually faster than FTP! Why? It should be noted that I have only been transferring files with the Mac as Server and Ubuntu as client, i.e. logging into the mac from Ubuntu and transferring files TO Ubuntu.
Is there something wrong with my setup? It's so easy so I cannot see how. The applications I use are the following,
SSH: OS X - Built in, Ubuntu - Connect To Server (Built in)
FTP: OS X - pureFTPd, Ubuntu - Connect To Server (Built in)
Also, what speeds should I be expecting from my network? So far I have maxed out at 550 KB/s (SSH) and often the speed is half of that. It should be noted that FTP and SSH are close in terms of speed, but the latter seems to have the edge.
[SOLVED] NFS vs SMB on NAS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 5, 2013
I have a NAS from Buffalo Tech. that supports both SAMBA and NFS. It seems to be powered by a Linux kernel. I intend to access it from both Windows 7 and Linux. What would be the correct approach for inter-compatibility when setting it up for access from both Windows and Linux, should the machines connect using NFS or SAMBA on the NAS. I don't mind using both but I'd prefer using only one of the two services on the NAS.
As a more generic question in a mix environment where the server is Linux powered and provides storage space to both Linux and Windows 7 and up clients what protocol should the clients use to access the shared storage space, NFS, CIFS, SMBFS or something else?

Is it possible to PXEboot squashfsbased distro without having to use nfs/http/ftp ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 16, 2012
So that's the question.
I tried many options, but it never worked.
Some distros can use e.g. the netboot=tftp://10.0.0.1/systemrescuecd/sysrcd.dat
But i can't with squashfs.
lftp vs. sftp vs. ftp?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 9, 2008
although i know what all three are, why is one better/worse than another? i've read a handful of articles which say sftp is "more secure" and lftp is "faster" than ftp, but does anyone have any better insight?
and to throw another wrench in the machine, how does ssh fit into all this?
really? no one has any insight?

NFS vs Samba
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 23, 2004
After doing a search this specific question has never been asked, i did look Ok here is the scenerio.
Dell laptop (dual boot XP, FC2)
Compaq Laptop (XP)
Gateway laptop (XP)
Compaq laptop (FC2)
Gateway Laptop (FC2)
I am trying to weigh out Samba vs using NFS and the Unix Service for XP (it does exist). I know Samba will let me share files fairly easily between the XP and Linux machines but what about my Linux to Linux boxes, i know i can FTP but is there a GUI method to browse your Linux boxes ? Also i know from my XP boxes there is a graphical method just through network neighborhood but when i go to the network icon in Linux it always shows blank under Windows Network !
The goal is to be able to just use a GUI between any machine to drag files with users that are not Linux Experts, including me. I would say i could just use a Hybrid of the two but that seems like alot of unnecessary processes running on those Linux boxes.
Apache Index vs Ftp server

NFS vs. Shorewall conflict (should be easy to solve :newbie: here)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 4, 2004
** duplicate post - i'm sorry but it's an easy question yet there's two places 4 it **
(take a guess where the other is)
Ok, i can get NFS to share read-only directories between two Mandrake Linux machines over a LinkSys box. However to do so, I have to turn off Shorewall, effectively leaving me wide open for Firewall protection....
What parameters do I supply Shorewall with to allow NFS to operate and is this a bad thing ?
thanks a bunch
