dear list. :)
This will probably be a very simple question, with a very obvious answer to
all of you, but not to me.
I would like to securely mount a (part of a) filesystem of another (suse)
linux server via the internet. So that copying files to that certain mount
point, actually means: copying that file to a server far away in another
I've done some searching, and these seem to be options:
- nfs (seems to be unsafe (except when over vpn))
- ssh (file transfer possible, but mounting as filesystem not)
- lufs (enables you to mount ftp/ssh locations in filesystem, but requires
So, what do you people here use? And what is the 'recommened' way to do
this? BTW: i can do whatever I want also on the remote machine, it's 'my'
machine, so any configuration is possible. And yes: both sides have very
decent internet connections.
Thanks very much in advance,
