SSHFS takes SSH and shows you files, via a virtual/pseudo Filesystem (called fuse). so you can mount an SSH servers directory on a client
Normally you would connect like so:
sshfs firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/user1/ /mnt # or if your using another port sshfs email@example.com:/home/user1/ /mnt -p 22
Now it will ask the typical ssh questions (is this a known secure server, just say yes and hit enter). also login password.
You can automate this like so:
# autologin with password: PASSWORD1 echo PASSWORD1| sshfs firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/user1/ /mnt -p 22 -o password_stdin # now most likely if your using the above method, might as well download sshfs just incase its not there (you can add in a check to skip that step if sshfs already exists) # the script below runs in a subshell due to (), so when I type "|| exit", im not worried about my terminal closing. That just checks if sshfs command fails, it will exit the subshell (cp /etc/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf.bak echo "nameserver 220.127.116.11" > /etc/resolv.conf cat /etc/resolv.conf.bak >> /etc/resolv.conf # download apt-get update -y apt-get install sshfs -y mkdir /mnt # connect echo PASSWORD1| sshfs email@example.com:/home/user1/ /mnt -p 22 -o password_stdin || exit # if the above fails, we dont want to continue with the rest of the script # you can continue with other stuff here, like lets say you want to dump some file cp somefile /mnt)
