Access FileVault sparseimages via ssh
Authored by: bauldrywc on Mar 04, '04 05:12:25PM

Instead of mounting the images and using the terminal to find the files, set up an ssh tunnel (directly in a shell, with Fugu, or with SSH Tunnel Manager) to forward a local port to port 548 on the remote machine. Then you can just use standard Mac file sharing to access the remote volume via "Go/Connect to Server". I do this all the time to get through our university firewall to mount my office machine from home and its through ssh securely. The protected volume is decoded on the fly.

Where will the file mount ... on the remote machine or local ?
