    mounting a linux fs over ssh

    Does anyone know of a way to mount a remote linux file system on a local windows pc over an ssh connection?

    Is there a way to mount a ssh connection as a network drive in windows?

    I'm sorry, but Windows can't do this sorta thing unless you want to build a custom filesystem driver (ala WebDav or ftp thingie in 'Network Places' or whatever phrase Microsoft is using nowdays).

    For now your best bet would be to use NFS (e.g. Install SFU on the Windows machine), or do the reverse and install Samba on the Linux machine.

    Theres a great Linux kernel module called SHFS which allows you to mount remote directories over ssh or rsh just incase you haven't found it already - http://shfs.sourceforge.net/

    I know this isn't really a solution, but I hope it atleast helps a little.

    Regards,

    I was hoping there might be a little tool that would be able to handle this type of thing. Too bad.
