Re: [OCLUG-Tech] linking to files inside debootstrap

As I'm running an old kernel inside the debootstrap it's possible Bart's
solution may give trouble.

However, I seem to have found a nice solution via a post on the net that
gave the hint. Here's what I did:

1) Inside the VM, I installed ssh and edited sshd_config so the port is

2) In my client machine I added a config file in /home/ME/.ssh that has
the structure

 Host machine1
 Hostname firewall.my_network.com
 Port 22
 HostKeyAlias machine1

 Host machine2
 Hostname firewall.my_network.com
 Port 9922
 HostKeyAlias machine2

3) Then I had to make sure the known_hosts file was OK by running ssh to
both "machines". I even set up gftp to do it nicely, which was what I
wanted all along i.e., to be able to directly load stuff to my VM user.

Main purpose of all this is to share private (but not secret) files with
some colleagues and friends so that they can access them via the web to
the http://machine/~VMuser/ locations.

Thanks anyway to Bart. I'll try to learn the mounts sometime.
