How can i connect two computers with a unsecure connection by sshfs
unsecure because old computers, but speed is need for fast file transfers in home network.

found this

server:
socat TCP4-LISTEN:7777 EXEC:/usr/lib/sftp-server

client:
sshfs -o directport=7777 remote:/dir /local/dir

what for a sftp client do i use in gentoo?
emerge --search sftp shows me no sftp-servers

are there other ways to mount a remote computer?

Basically, you are saying you want to use SSH but you don't want to use SSH. That's a good one. 8)

SarahS93,

If you really want ssh, the question you need to ask is can it be built with the null cypher.
I would like to think that that would be very difficult.

At least with NFS it does not pretend to provide any security, unlike ssh with the null cypher.

Google says you need to build ssh both ends to support the "none" cypher spec.
That's a huge gaping security hole, on a par with running telnet over the internet.

The "none" cipher requires openssh[hpn], which hasn't been updated since 7.8. Even with that, sshfs-fuse will refuse to use it.

If you want low CPU, you have to use NFS. An FTP fuse mount might work too. Don't bother with Samba, it's as slow SSH.
