Samba Server and Remote Server Administration


New Member
Hi there!
I have a Centos 7 with Samba installed on it, and I need to access the samba server remotely, but I don't want to use SSH.
The reason to avoid connecting to my samba server over SSH (from my understanding), is that then every Client (Windows, Linux or Mac) will need to use the SSH key.
Is there any way to connect to my server from Linux without using SSH?
I intend to access the server through the command line.

Thank you so much in advance for your time and disposition.

Hello @DamianCA
In case you SSH your server from your LAN the use of key is not necessary, even from outer internet.
Use of key is another lever of security not a prerequisite for SSH.
Anyway if still don't you want to use SSH, try VNC.
