So I had this idea to mount a remote Linux folder from a VPS on my Windows 7 machine.
So far I have tried dokan SSHFS, it works, but it is damn slow and buggy and it doesn't allow to edit anything directly. Next I tried NetDrive, it was slightly better. but not impressing at all. And for some reason it seemed to work significantly faster over WebDAV than FTP. Lastly I tried Samba over VPN. It took 50 seconds or so to simply open a folder. Is there some other solution? Is it a Windows problem?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Try max protocol = SMB2 in Samba's configuration file. SMB2 should be a little faster. – grawity Sep 25 '11 at 21:39

ExpanDrive for Mac and Windows, does a great job.
Personally nowadays I just try not to have such a workflow or go with WebDav.
