I'll see how it goes

Have you considered something a little less interactive such as CVS ? It sounds like you are collaborating with people in a different place, perhaps it would be better to keep your data under CVS, then do the 'check out, edit, check in' cycle ?


Transport for that would be ssh with the same performance you would expect.

shfs looks very nice, but I really would advise against any sort of interactive filesystem access across a WAN link. You're just going to get yourself into a world of pain. By attempting to avoid that extra little 'push the data back to the server' step you will ultimately slow down your overall workflow since you will sit waiting and twiddling your thumbs for _EVERY_ file operation to the remote filesystem.

Better to edit the data locally then push it by some of the many available methods (webdav, http put, cvs, rsync, etc...)

I've been doing this a long time (10+ years) so I'm not a newbie here :)

Cheers,
