sshfs, nfs - how to remotely mount /cifs1

    Sometimes I travel, and all my mp3's are stored on my NAS at home. When I go on vacation, or just travel for work, and I have an internet connection, I'd like to connect to my NAS remotely, so my MP3 player can simply connect via TCP over the Internet.

    Currently, I haven't been successful in figuring out a way to connect to my NAS remotely through my WRT54GSv4 running Tomato 1.19.

    I've tried connecting to my NAS through the Tomato using SSH tunneling on port 2049 and connecting via NFS with TCP. I suspect I haven't tried hard enough, but it hasn't worked.

    I've also tried using sshfs from my Mac to Tomato to mount /cifs1/, but that also fails as sshfs utilizes sftp.

    Has anyone successfully mounted, remotely, through or to a Tomato router, a filesystem? Being able to mount and access/stream files over the network as a mounted drive would rock, even if it was:

    laptop -> ssh tunnel -> Tomato -> /cifs1/ -> NAS

    I'd love to bypass using CIFS between the Tomato and NAS, but I'll take anything at this point.

    Thanks! I love being able to access my TiVo remotely using SSH tunnels.

    An option may be to VPN to a machine on your house net, and then mount the NAS as if you are at home using whatever protocol you like.

    The router could also be the VPN server.

    I could install the OpenVPN mod of Tomato, yah, but that seems like overkill. I'd much prefer the standard Tomato install to be able to do this. I _KNOW_ there has got to be a way, I just haven't figured it out yet.
