I'm new to both these lists so if this isn't the right place,
point me in the right direction.
I've got a Sun that I want to use for file services for our desktops (Mac,
W95). I was planning on using netatalk and samba until I thought about
the lack of file locking b/n the two.
So, I started looking at other options (like Syntax's Totalnet),
but it's quite a bit of money just for file locking :)
My question is - for those of you who run both samba and netatalk have you
had problems with files getting corrupted due to lack of file locking?
If I get enough requests I'll summarize the results.
