Hi, I have been using password safe for a few years and just upgraded from 3.22 to 3.26. Previously I had 2 PC's each running a local database where one was a copy of the other. My New router has a USB port and a NAS, so I hooked a drive to it and created a share and put both database there with different names . I proceeded to do a compare and updated the source database with the differences. I then renamed the updated database to a new name and write protected the originals.
So Far so good, I was able to access the safe from either PC running 3.22 one at a time, Here is my concern I updated to 3.26 green version on desktop and laptop, and successfully opened the new database from each PC. No issues.
1) Security, I have no clue how strong a NAS storage is if I can get hacked in my router, I have a password on the NAS when i map to the share it requires it. So with Password Safe, I have a password with 5 words in a sentence mixed case and punctuation. How secure is this database if I were to get hacked into.
2) Can both PC's access the same database simultaneoulsy or is there a mutual exclusive lock?
3) Is it acceptable to do this type of setup in securing a home netowrk where the database file is on a NAS?
4) I guess it is ok to do green configs like I did on individual PC's. typically both PC's aren't on at the same time.
