I'm trying to remotely manage a filesystem from Mint 14 to Mint 12. There's a folder where everything gets dumped - logs from work, recent downloads, etc, etc, etc, and I periodically go through it and put everything in the right place. There are four data partitions that get mounted on boot. The "dumping ground" exists on one of them, but "the right place" might be on any one of them. I've recently discovered SSHFS, which seems like an ideal solution - I can use two panes in Nemo and move files around the remote file system.
The big problem: Moving files between the mount points on the remote filesystem gives "Operation not permitted" - any ideas?
Smaller problem: Copying files between the mount points (the workaround) copies them over the network via the other machine - is there a way for this operation to happen "remotely"?
Thanks up front for any time spent considering this, even if you end as stumped as me.
