Everything I've found on this is either how to encrypt a mounted drive, or not to do with servers.
I have an ubuntu 14.04 server which I am trying to mount as a network share onto my 14.04 desktop so I can use something other than vim or emacs to edit files.
I've connected to the server through ssh, through the terminal and nautilus, so can easily copy and paste files across. But I can't access any files directly through programs such as PyCharm.
I've mounted the server to /mnt/nfs/home.
But the only files which are accessible are 'Access-Your-Private-Data.desktop' and 'README.txt' - both seem to be corrupt, or empty. I assume this is because I have encrypted the server.
So what is the process for mounting an encrypted server?
At the moment I'm trying to mount with sshfs.
sudo sshfs user@server:/home /mnt/nfs/home
Just converts the directory /home at /mnt/nfs into a binary file.
