I have a university server that I can log into via putty and "ls" gives me all my files and stuff. However, I occasionally (regularly) need to work on these files from home. I would like a solution to this. I was thinking
1) Can I mount a folder on my Windows 7 box so that when I open the folder it "runs, 'ls' in the background and lists all files for me in a GUI"
2) Can I download these files via putty but then upload them back when I am done updating them (I would actually not like to do this)
