Question How to mount a 'path' from the network?


Hi there,

My situation is that I've got a desktop within my university domain named 'pc1'. There are several other machines in my office as well, e.g., named 'pc2'. Every time, when I want to run some of the codes written by my group, I need to use 'ssh' to connect 'pc2':

Code:
ssh -X pc2.cs.xxx.edu
cd /home/cs/group1
As my machine pc1 is under the same domain as pc2, is there a method to mount '/home/cs/group1' directly? (I've got the user name and password)

Then I can run the codes under '/home/cs/group1' directly on my machine.

I checked 'mount' command, but hasn't got a clue how to do it. Thanks in advance if any suggestions or keywords I can google. Cheers.

Not a networking question, moved to linux - newbie.

Sounds like you want to look at sshfs, although as you've said nothing about what kind of file system /home is, nfs? If so there is probably a better way.

Note that being in tte same domain means nothing under linux insofar as they would typically be deployed, it's much more of a windows thing unless you're looking at single sign on with kerberos etc.

Thanks a lot for your reply.

Just check using

Code:
df -T
I guess it is the right thing to do.

The '/home/cs/group1' is nfs, and pc1 is using Opensuse11, pc2 is using CentOS. I think '/home/cs/group1' is somewhere on the network. May I ask the details how to mount it please? Cheers!
