May I just note that .local is not "made up" it is in fact reserved; just not for this type of use: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.local

Note that smbstatus on a Linux box will let you see which PIDs go with which users, and you can kill those specifically to disconnect them.

comment Accurate, Unspoofable Time Source
I see this is very old but I feel its worth mentioning that you can use keyed connections to trusted time sources manually. Just ring up the admin of a trusted time source and ask to use their service with ntp keys.

comment Networked removable storage
You should always be in control of your data. Moving data offsite yourself is the only way to know its safe. Depending on an online backup solution means adding several more points of failure. I can't recommend online backups as a primary backup solution to any customer.
