Mounting a drive


Create a script named "mount-miles-dev" and set it to executable.  In the script place the following

fusermount -z -u /home/[yourMachine'sUserName]/MyDev
sshfs -o transform_symlinks -o idmap=user [yourDevUserName][yourDevUserName] ~/My_Dev


Use SFTP Netdrive to mount your saturn dev as a drive.



Here are the details for setting up Putty to access our three different dev environments (Your Dev, Client Dev, Live)

Putty is a free download that can be used on Windows or Linux machines to access ssh to our development servers. Download it and run it on your machine. If you are on a Windows machine, after you run it the first time, copy the attached putty.reg file to your desktop, then right-click it and select "Merge". This will add the settings to your Putty configuration.
