I have a home server running in Asia and work in North America. The server has 6TB of storage which I regularly need access to. When I'm home I just use encrypted SMB through the local network, but it turns out that both AFP and SMB are unreliable for anything else. (Curiously enough when I connect by VPN to the server both protocols work fine) Are there better ways to make this work? I'd prefer it be encrypted as I don't want my uni snooping in on my files...and I don't want to resort to VPN+SMB every time I need to do something on my server. The university has gigabit internet speeds; my home server has 100 Mbps up/down. VPN+SMB achieves around 2 Mbps.
