Mounting server directories on your Mac through SSHFS with MacFUSE
This will let you mount a directory on your Mac so you can transparently browse, edit, and save files on a server. Basically, it makes the files on the server a part of your filesystem while you are connected. Opening and saving things will be slower than native files, but not too horrible if you have a decent internet connection speed. You also probably wouldn't want to run any scripts from these directories natively, either, as they are unlikely to work properly.
gunzip sshfs-static-leopard.gz sudo mv sshfs-static-leopard /usr/local/bin/sshfs
Make a directory that you want to be a mount point:
Now you can use a command like this to connect:
sshfs firstname.lastname@example.org: ~/dw -oauto_cache,reconnect,volname=DW
You can also specify a specific path to mount:
sshfs email@example.com:cvs/dw-free/ ~/dw -oauto_cache,reconnect,volname=DW
To disconnect, you can use the command:
Or go find the mount point and disconnect using Finder.
