linux: i want smart network mounts
on my laptop I (net)mount (sshfs) a folder on a workstation on my local lan at work.
I open file manager, browse to mounted folder, open an ODT file and start editing.
i suspend the laptop midwork by closing the lid, take it with me home, where I open it and want to continue working.
workstation is accessible from home with ssh and portforwarding
with #autofs this does not work well. libreoffice freezes forever and filemanager freezes until it gets network.
i want this self-healing non-freezing mechanism to the same mountpoint where autofs would intelligently try multiple mounts and in the meantime provide some soft notif to processes that want to access the folder on inaccessible mount...
