If you actually want to "sync" the data between 2 machines, NFS/AFS
isn't really going to do anything for you. It would just grant access
to the information remotely. If you truly want to sync the data, rsync
over ssh is the way to go. It's pretty easy to get it running in the
background, just set up a cron job that runs at your desired interval
(once a day, twice a day, every 5 minutes, etc.) to do the dirty work.
That should sync you up without any interaction.
