I was at a meeting today and one of the participants came up to me after
the meeting to ask a Samba-related question. The problem he is facing
is that he's got a bunch of Windows clients which are, of course,
vulnerable to viruses and such. During the meeting there was some
discussion of software that would run on a Novell NetWare server and scan
for windows viruses in "real time". The question was: could this be done
After thinking a moment it occurred to me that it should be possible to
build a Samba VFS layer that would do virus scanning *iff* there is Open
Source virus scanning software available. Files could be scanned on open,
I don't know if this idea has been suggested before. I think it would be
a very nice feature for Samba if it could be made to work.
