I now have a samba share that is accessed over a pritunl vpn.
Users can access documents under demand. This is a Linux server running samba and ~10 clients with windows 10/11.
Setup is not perfect and I am wondering if it is possible to replace with syncthing. These are 2 Tbytes of data, with ~200k files in it. I don’t want to sync per se, but use synthing client to allow random access.
Of course that would not be the main scope of syncthing, but this possibility could be very useful for devices with a limited storage space, like smartphones. Why not simply allowing browsing of files of a shared folder? And eventually download a selected file for local view.
