My home server has an external USB drive connected. I prefer to keep it unmounted so I don't have to log in if I want to unplug it (for backup rotation).
But I'd also like to be able to browse it in Thunar from my laptop; I tend to do Ctrl+L and
ssh://server/media/me/drive, it's very nice for copying pictures back and forth (which is not possible with
ssh -X server thunar)
Is there a simple way to get Thunar, running locally, to make the server mount the drive?
