10.4: How to create an SSH volume using FUSE
Authored by: Numbski on Jan 18, '07 07:59:06AM

I've downloaded this but not installed it yet. I need to.

There are a couple of things that need to be added to this tip that aren't there already (perhaps I can comment again later?).

1. How to set up passwordless ssh using shared keys (so your password does not need to be typed in).

2. Obviously there's a flag for diskarbitrationd so that finder can recognize it as a mounted volume. What's needed now is an automount method so that at login the volume gets mounted, and some management method so that if the network connection drops (such as on a laptop) it knows to attempt reconnection, etc.

Good stuff. :) Paired with a little filesystem syncronization magic, this could go the poor-man's roaming home directory solution. Finally.

10.4: How to create an SSH volume using FUSE

1. To create passwordless logins you can use this hint.

2. There is the "-o reconnect" flag for dropped connections and you could write a script that runs on startup/login to connect to the volume. I haven't personally tried any of these so YMMV.

Thanks, I know how to do passwordless ssh myself. Just thought a link on this hint would be useful. :)

The reconnect flag is sweet, thanks for that as well. I've gotta do a bit more poking around, but I like what I see so far. Only thing left is to use a synchonrization mechanization to replicate home directory changes at intervals and I'm set. ;)
