Linux mount over ssh


#1

Hya.
Lets see if the gurus here will help me in record time.
I’ve already search the wiki, but no luck.

I want to mount my account here on DH on a folder on my home.
And I’m not sure how I type the command to mount it properly.
it is something like: sudo mount ssh://user@example.com /mnt/DH ??

thanks for your quick reply.
That I know how to do.
I also know how to use the simple wizard that comes with ubuntu, that places an icon on your desktop.
But I want to make it on the console and map/mount it to another folder.
Latter I might even add it to fstab.

Good, according to Dreamhost’s recommendation, you’re always supposed to use the hostname and not your IP address to connect to your server. Your IP address may change from time to time, but your hostname will stay the same unless you change it yourself.

Also, thanks for the tip, I didn’t know this was possible under Linux, but this is going to be an enormous asset for me.

For anyone interested, there is a Windows utility that does pretty much the same thing called WebDrive, if you don’t have Linux installed. It’s not free software, but there is a free alternative released by Novell, called NetDrive, which I found to be highly unstable on pretty much every system I tried it on, so stay away!
WebDrive works great though, you can download the demo of the latest version (which works perfectly on Vista) at http://www.webdrive.com.
