Secure filesharing protocol for fileserver

http://serverfault.com – I'm setting up a fileserver, and I want lots of clients to easily access it.

Also, setting up the server is not so straighforward, it doesn't seem to be KISS enough - at least not for my liking. SMB: Same as AFS. It also seems not to be too well documented, and technic (HowTos)
