Anyone have experience with setting up a server that's accessible on the internet? Is that crazy?

My imagined scenario is having a pxe server in my house, with the file server living on a vps in the cloud. Is this wildly unsafe, or is 9p relatively secure?

@rdh 9p can be used over the Internet, but anything you want to have exposed to the Internet should be running software that's being actively maintained, otherwise the likelihood there are unfixed vulnerabilities will be high.

@rdh I know at least one person that does it. Personally I wouldn't do it unless I had a pretty solid firewall in place (and tight access control / rate limiting... etc)

Once 9front runs better in OpenBSD's vmm.. I will likely setup a remote OpenBSD box that exposes 9front via PF.
