How can I link a directory on a Mac to a remote directory on a Linux server? The Linux server has Samba and SSH available, and I can add other services if necessary

I created /etc/fstab and put the line in

{server}:/{share} /Users/{user}/{share} url automounted,url==cifs://guest@{server}/{share} 0 0

I then made a symbolic link to where I wanted it in the FS referencing /Users/{user}/{share}
