Server setup

I tested this on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS. The client machine is running Windows 10. You need a ssh account for your server (you should be able to connect to your server by using ssh username@host). If you are running linux on your client machine this should work too and you don't have to install WSL 2.

On your ubuntu server install:

  • sudo apt-get install sshfs

On your local machine:
