Is there a simple way to share files and folders with other linux ? i'm still using fedora 16 currently. i mean a way to do it without being neck deep in mountains of manual, tutorial and tips from the whole web, since the fedora docs only give a hint about nfs in fed 14 ( and none for fed 16, and yet it seems that the service name are already changed in fed 16, i read it somewhere in the forums.

i read about nfs, samba, etc, and i just cant seem to make them work properly for me, i just wanna share folder between my desktop and my laptop, not hacking my whole system, it's frustrating.

sshfs is relatively easy to use because you don't have to set up the server side. (sshd is installed and enabled by default in Fedora.)

Linux Journal has a tutorial on how to set up the client side of sshfs. One correction is that the fuse group is no longer used.

One tip is that if you use the option "-o idmap=user" then that will map the uids so that there are not file permissions issues.
