Probably more secure implementation than NFS, especially if the remote
filesystem is only excessable via a public network (the internet). However
NFS is by far the most documented and thus supported method for this. Oh and
there is smbfs to mount MS file systems, but I don't really recommend it
unless it's the only way (IE you need to mount a windows share).
