After several years of stationed linux deskotp I now have a laptop. I still have a server though, and I still like to access files on the server.
Problem is that with a Laptop I will go in and out of home network/server coverage. If I NFS-mount directories from the server and leave home with the laptop I may lose information or simply hang the laptop big time.
So what options do I have to access the server safely? Are there any alternatives to NFS that is better? Does it exist a file-system-layer based on FTP or can I access files similar way as with a mobile phone? Or do I set the write cache to 0 to enforce continuous flush?
I use BTRFS on the server but can consider moving to ZFS if that would simplify things.
