sshfs – mount files over ssh

Mount a file system on a different computer via ssh:

sshfs -o follow_symlinks user@server:/home/user/ /path/to/mount/point

server is the other computer, user is your username on the other computer and /home/user/ is the folder you want to include from the other computer. /path/to/mount/point is the place on your drive where the files will be located. It needs to be a folder that exists and is empty.

To get rid of the mounted folder again use

umount /path/to/mount/point

I am a computational linguist, teacher of computer science and above all a huge fan of LaTeX. I use LaTeX for everything, including things you never wanted to do with LaTeX. My latest love is lilypond, aka LaTeX for music. I'll post at irregular intervals about cool stuff, stupid hacks and annoying settings I want to remember for the future.
