Alternative to Windows Sharing (with UNC path support)?

Recommended Posts

shae    6

Can anyone suggest a low-level alternative to Windows Sharing? Something that works just the same, UNC paths and all, but does correctly access management, login, and logout.

I'm fed up with the Windows default. It's always trouble and always cryptic. Alas, I cannot find any alternative and I suspect nothing of the sort exists.

Fully integrated FTP might do, but just using FTP URLs, even where it works, is far from integrated. I'm after something that works, in terms of general interface, just like Microsoft Networking. Having \\server\path usable from any program for read or write.

Maybe something based around NFS exists? FreeNFS looks like it might be in that direction, but it's too minimal.
