    Safest Way to Share Configuration/Mounts


    Hi All,

    I recently got my raspberry pi (sweet!), so I have it set up as my media box to my tv. What I want to do is share the .xbmc folder with my laptop (basically make it my laptops .xbmc folder also). My media is all on externals so I suspect I'll also have to mount the drives over the network to my laptop in an identical fashion (/media/usb, /media/usb1).

    My question is what is the safest, most efficient way of doing this? I've asked similar questions before but never really understood the best way and this question is slightly different

    My understanding is:

    samba automount (not very safe through fstab)
    samba non auto mount (not very efficient)
    openssh -- not sure if raspberry pi supports this or not...

    any other options?

    Best Regards

    If your laptop is running linux, just use nfs.
