I am looking for a way to set this up. I have a Debian server which I use to hold my home directory for my user account. I used to use Windows 7 and connect to my /home/username directory via Samba which worked great. I could access all of my files as if they were sitting on my local PC, but they were actually sitting on my Debian server.
Now I have decided to give Ubuntu 10.10 a try (looks promising so far!). One thing I'm not sure how to do is to mount my home directory from my server! I am able to open an sftp connection to my server, but not able to access them natively as they were /home/username on my local machine. I'm assuming I need to mount my home directory somewhere in my fstab before it starts up, but which protocol should I use? I'm used to using windows networking, but am trying to get more into linux. Should I use NFS? I'm assuming not Samba? Any direction would be appreciated!
