    Access file on different server from local


    Hi.

    Say I have a file 'my_file.txt' stored on 'myserver1.col.edu'

    Now, I am using a different server 'myserver2.col.edu' to do some work and I want to access 'my_file.txt' on 'myserver1.col.edu' to read (possibly edit) WITHOUT physically copying the entire file across. Is there a way to do this - perhaps through ssh?

    Thanks,

    Yes, if you are able to ssh into myserver1, just open the file with any text editor to read/edit.
