I have set a VPN tunnel from my laptop at home to my desktop at the lab. Only from the lab I can access the workstation.
When I'm in the lab I use Spyder to open my python files from the workstation. To do this I use 'Connect to server' in Ubuntu. Then I can easily surf the folders and files from the opened window; and right-click, open with, spyder. I work comfortable with the interested files and, when I'm ready, execute them in the workstation with ssh.
From home I can of course use the ssh to remote the workstation. I use vim and for small jobs I am happy. But for more ambituous tasks I want spyder.
The question is: How can I open(edit/save) files in the workstation from Spyder in my home? For example using 'connect to server' would be nice but every solution is also fine.
