How can I link a directory in another computer to mine


Hi,

I want to use some data in another computer for running my program. I do not want to move them to my computer cos of its size. Is there any way to use this data e.g. by symbolic link or ... both computers use linux, Fedora.

Thanks

If you have root access to the machine where the directory resides, you could share it via NFS and then mount it on your machine. There will be a wealth of information about doing this online, so do some googling.

You'll have to mount it locally, there's no way around that. If you can't use NFS, perhaps you can try SSHFS. Fedora may or may not have a package for it, I don't know.
