Network file system --> sshfs
NFS is nice. It comes shipped with everything (well everything noteworthy, excluding DOS- and VMS- based systems) and is relatively simple to set up. But it can be trÃ¨s frustrating: whenever the connection breakes, both parties are f*cked. That is, client reboot fer sure and the server will be ill at best. Oh, and it doesn't like large files a lot... So... DONT use NFS. It'll cause you more pain than it's worth.
a better solution is sshfs. it works fine as well, but is better than NFS. So, if you use NFS, get sshfs now, make sure the fuse module is loaded
and mount it
sshfs -o allow_others USER@HOST:/PATH MOUNTPOINT
you can skip the USER@; "-o allow_others" makes the mount viewable by other users. umounting is done as normal. Just for comparison, nfs would be
mount HOST:/PATH MOUNTPOINT
