Is it possible to have, say, one machine with software installed and call that software from another machine? I thought this would be called an "application server" but by googling I find things that are not exactly what I want. My scenario is basically the following:
I have a computer at home with Ubuntu and a bunch of programs, under which one Latex distribution. This is setup as a server, with ssh-access, apache and the like. From my work computer, running Windows, I would like to use my Latex at home instead of installing it locally. But I would like it to store the files, in particular the generated PDF, in the Work computer (this is actually not extremely important: I can always copy the files later, but it would just save some time if it worked).
What are the possible ways to do that?
