Mounting a Multidrive share on a Linux machine using SSHFSs

  1. Establish a remote connection to the remote computer, such as guardian.it.mtu.edu, using a Secure shell (SSH) through a terminal.

  2. Navigate to the /local directory to find available Multidrive shares. This example uses: /local/my_web_files.
    cd /local/

  3. Enter the command to list the available Multidrive shares:
    ls
    You should get an output similar to:
    classes my_web_files

    Note: If the Multidrive share does not appear when using the ls command, change to the directory with the correct share name using the cd command, then wait for it to appear. This example uses the cd command to access the Multidrive share "my_web_files."
    cd /local/my_web_files

  4. Enter the command to list the files in the Multidrive share.
    ls my_web_files/$USER

    Note: $USER is an environment variable that holds the local username. If it differs from your Michigan Tech account name, you will need to use that instead.

  5. Enter the command to mount the Multidrive share:
    sshfs -C $USER@guardian.it.mtu.edu:/local/my_web_files/$USER ./local-directory-for-share

    Note: $USER is an environment variable that holds the local username. If it differs from your Michigan Tech account name, you will need to use that instead.

  6. To unmount the Multidrive share, use the following command:
    umount ./local-directory-for-share
