Hi Bill,

I don't know what your requirements are, but have a look at ownCloud : http://owncloud.org/six/

Look at above link for what you can do with ownCloud six

You install it on your server, then you can link your clients, via the browser or via Desktop Sync Clients : http://owncloud.org/sync-clients/
Clients are for Linux, Mac and Windows

For a few linux distro you can use the repos
for Ubuntu, you need to add the repo to your server and clients, look here : http://software.opensuse.org/download/package?project=isv:ownCloud:community&package=owncloud

Then install owncloud on your server, and owncloud-client on the clients, or, on the clients use your fav browser

Hope this helps

Subject: [ubuntu-za] sshfs

I have been struggling for some time trying to find the best way of integrating my Linux desktops into my  home network - which runs on Linux and Samba.

I had a successful, but not very elegant, solution using Gigolo and gvfs but that stopped working when I moved to 14.04. In looking for a reason or perhaps a better solution, I found out about sshfs.

This is a far better and neater solution to connecting Linux computers together and I am more than happy with it. I am only sad that it took me so long to find it.

I am submitting this post just in case someone else out there is looking for a good way of connecting their Linux desktops to each other and to a Linux server.
