I have the following setup. Running NFS over an ssh tunnel is very slow for the 1.3 TB & thousands of files I have.
synology box <---> NAT (work) <---> internet <---> NAT (home) <---> ubuntu server
I have a 1.3 TB share on the synology box that I want to represent with a 'virtual' file system on the ubuntu server (they're mostly music files). I currently run nfs over a reverse ssh tunnel to accomplish this (I cannot modify my work NAT, but I can port forward on my home NAT). My setup works, but it's really slow. I'm wondering if rclone might be faster for, for example, detecting changes in files, streaming them, etc? Many thanks in advance.
What is the problem you are having with rclone?
No problem - not yet installed.
Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.
Not yet installed.
Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)
None - synology box on one side, ubuntu box on the other.
The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)
Thanks @asdffdsa - I've tried using sshfs - sftp, but I don't think it's any faster. So, can rclone present a virtual filesystem to linux, which streams upon access?
btw, tailscale looks very cool - hadn't seen it before, thanks.
