Re: remote folder/file access please help
There are a number of options you can use.
You can set up a VPN.
Install an ssh server on the windows box and use sshfs on the ubuntu box.
You can use a vnc (with ssh !!) client on Ubuntu and server on the XP box. This will give you remote desktop.
You could SCP, SFTP or rsync the file from the xp box, make your changes and copy it back.
What ever you do, make sure your setup is secure ! You will need to open some ports on your router as well and this will make the xp box vulnerable to attacks on the open port.
Do you want a GUI or are you happy with CLI ?
It'll be interesting to see what others think as well.
