Give me 10 minutes with a sniffer and a few nifty tools and not only can I
find the PPTP session but, take control. Now, *I* have access to your file
on that NiceTry Server. I have yet to see or hear about this being done
with an SSH tunnel. Perhaps you would like to put a unix box on your
network to do SSH tunnels with and from there, mount your SAMBA share from
the NiceTry box. Or then again, maybe you trust MS. <sic>
