I'm fairly new to OpenBSD but I'm trying to cobble together what you might call a poor man's NAS with an existing computer with OpenBSD and external hd.
For this task, I'll have clients (both internal and external) regularly connect to transfer files to the mounted external disk over SSH. I'm trying to make things as seamless as possible, as I'll be backing up from Linux, OSX, and (possibly Windows) machines that are both internal and external to the home network. So, wanting to avoid compatibility issues, how best to have OpenBSD treat the mounted disk like an encrypted volume to accomplish this task? I'd like to know about svnd vs. softraid for my particular purposes, decryption compatibility issues, and also any additional ideas you might have.
