    The goal of this howto is building a NFS server that works on a SSH tunnel. This way all traffic between your hosts and the file server is encrypted and thus more secure :)

    Normally you should enter a password every time you try to establish a SSH connection but since we could be mounting at bootup we will use ssh-keygen to create a keypair so we can login without entering a password.

    We will, however, limit that login session to executing just 1 command

    We will use a new clean Debian Sarge install to begin with....
