Re: Samba Shared Folders over a WAN link



Came across something that might be of help to you.  Apparently there is
a utility that lets you mount files across the network using ftp and
ssh.

This may give you the performance you want as well as the access.

Found this as one of the utilities on a rescue CD I was looking at
today.  (which looks like it would be handy to have around for
emergencies)

Searched a little and found this reference to the lufsmount program.

If you want to access files located on an FTP server, there is a new
very powerful way to do this. The "userLand FileSystem" allows you to
mount the share, and work on the remote files just as you would work on
any local files. With all these file systems, you can unmount the share
with the standard umount command. 

Here is an example of how to mount an FTP file system in /mnt/ftp as
anonymous (read only)

 # mkdir /mnt/ftp
 # lufsmount ftpfs://ftp.server.org /mnt/ftp
 # cd /mnt/ftp
 # umount /mnt/ftp

Here is an example of how to mount a private FTP account in /mnt/ftp2 

 # mkdir /mnt/ftp2
 # lufsmount ftpfs://login:password ftp server org /mnt/ftp2
 # cd /mnt/ftp2
 # umount /mnt/ftp2

Here is an example of how to mount an SSH file system in /mnt/ssh as
anonymous (read only) 

 # mkdir /mnt/ssh
 # lufsmount sshfs://login ssh server org /mnt/ssh
 # cd /mnt/ssh
 # umount /mnt/ssh
