At home I tried to set up NFS to serve up a 1Tb drive (torrents,
backups, etc) but issues with mapping gid/uids annoyed me. Now I use
sshfs. I have an alias:
alias mountbobcat='sshfs carlo at 192.168.1.70:/ /bobcat/'
My partner has the same alias, and by copying her ssh key to the
server, logging in is quick and easy and on her laptop/username the
files appear to her as if she owned them.
It's fast enough to stream an AVI file over our wireless network.
