Can you not add a user to both systems (making sure there UID) is
correct, or create a group on both systems (again making sure the gid is
correct), and put the user in the group, and set the appropriate group
permissions?

From rom a basic point of view.

I do not believe there is any way, of having the system set up so that a
user that couldn't access the file on the server, can access it on the
lcient.
