Have OMV backing up my own files and remote access to it. Next step is
easy sync'ing and read access to their content for non-tech relatives
and colleagues, from WAN (vs LAN only). Please what would be the
options for that? Note am a brand NAS newbie though a relatively
experimented Linux user.
Public and OS: Non-tech users on Linux, Windows and Android.
1. Easy content sync'ing (backup)
Syncthing seems a good way to go. I.e. set up a sync folder on their
machines; set up a folder per user with quota and ACL + trash or version
control "à-la-Dropbox" on the OMV/Syncthing server; letting them know
the size limitation, done. It's doing fine on my OMV and Linux/android
2. Timely and easy access to their content
that would be
- easy to use for non-tech users
- read only (for backup-like sync'ed content)
- ACL: user ß only sees his/her files (with optional group access for e.g. team members)
- from Linux, Android or Windows
- quick to set up on the client side
I thought about these options:
- SFTP? would be my preferred way but seems a bit overkill in term of per-user config
- FTP: neat and rather easy on both client and server's sides, but can it be secured enough (I have no recent experience at all)
- Samba/CIFS? looks best for LAN and read/write access from Windows
- Another way?
