Right now, we just have a number of PCs linked together on an ethernet hub. Most of the files reside on one computer (mine).
Ideally, I'd like to have a central server, and maybe a VPN set up. There are a few problems with this lovely idea:
- I'm not sure we can afford a server.
- There's nobody here with technical savvy in case something goes wrong.
- I'll be the only one accessing the system remotely, so perhaps a VPN is overkill.
It might make more sense to build another PC to store the files on, and just set-up a quick-and-dirty ssh connection.
Keep in mind that I'll probably have to implement whatever I come up with, and I am a technical luddite.*
