VPN with Samba Share
Okay, so I'm not the most network savvy person, in fact, I got out of that area intentionally because it just wasn't for me. But I have a scenario where I need to mount a network drive on a Windows machine that is to a samba share on a NAS.
Now this works great locally, absolutely no problems what-so-ever. However, when we are travelling, obviously this doesn't work and now I need it to. Would utilizing a VPN to the NAS resolve this issue?
The steps taken when locally:
1) Connect to SAMBA share directly (as they are on the same network)
The steps taken when not on the same network:
1) Connect the VPN
2) Connect to SAMBA share (as the VPN should make it seem like it is on the same network)
Is this correct? Or am I missing something?
