I'm a filmmaker/video editor and I'm often in the situation where I'm on location and I have my laptop and I want to edit on the go, but all my files are at home. I'm wanting to create a file server hosted on a rasbery pi that is plugged into my nas or somehow has access to my pc files, and then i want to be able to connect over the intenet and pull the files i need. and also have sync capabilities.
I use GoodSync for my backups, and noticed it has the ability to sync over FTP, so this would work great. I work on a windows pc/laptop.
I'm thinking FTP would be easiest to setup on the rasberry pi ? (not that I've ever done it before or even know how to...). Is it easy to set this up, as well as any necessary port forwarding and ddns shenanigans I have to do to my consumer router?
Is there a better protocol I should be looking into rather then ftp? such as HTTP? I'd love to be able to create a VPN but my router doesn't allow it.
I really appricate any advice! Cheers, Josh
