I've compiled a detailed step by step explanation of how to mount your home directory on a Linux server (Debian GNU/Linux based) via a mini-VPN on your Mac. The How To uses OpenVPN and it's marvellous client counterpart Tunnelblick.

Here's a short summary of the steps involved:

  1. Download and install OpenVPN on your server.
  2. Configure OpenVPN on your server.
  3. Install and set up Samba on your server, if it's not there already.
  4. Start openvpn and samba.
  5. Download and install Tunnelblick on your Mac.
