Well, I did n bit of Googling and, like most great ideas :), there is a

It describes almost exactly what I want. Will try it out tonight.


Tried this some time ago and the performance was pretty poor. Spends a
significant amount of time authenticating and not a lot of time on
servicing files which is BTW the major issue with the approach that you
describe, each request for a resource requires an authentication request
(whether or not authentication is actually required). It is an extremely
inefficient way of doing things. If you have a very small legacy
workgroup it may be useful but it essentially does the same thing as
cifs but slower.

They may have improved things since...
