Does anyone have recommendations / scripts for mounting sshfs filesystems

I would prefer to not have to type another password ( I have full disk
and so already enter 2 passwords )

I guess this might need a option / or timeout if I'm traveling and don't
have the VPN up.


set up pubkey auth. no password needed and more secure than password
auth. if you're looking for an actual script to run on login, let me
know and i can type up a quick one for you and tell you how to get it to
run on login.
I'm very interested in suggestions. I've been running this as a script:

#The goal of this script is to create an SSH tunnel for mounting
#Samba shares from remote locations. What follows is a description
#of the options used to achieve this effect:

#-E preserves the user environment, overriding the root environment
#invoked by sudo (which is necessary to assign ports such as 139)
#-f forks the ssh process into the background, freeing up the terminal in which it was run. #-F forces the use of the user's SSH config file (specified here in the default location) #-N declares that no command will be run on the remote server, which is necessary to fork (-f) #-L creates the bind between remote and local ports, specified here as 139 to handle Samba

sudo service smbd stop
sudo -E ssh -f -F /home/USERNAME/.ssh/config REMOTESERVER[ok to use abbreviations from .ssh/config here] -N -L 139:localhost:139

echo -n "Press Enter to exit this script gracefully."
read answer

echo "Restarting Samba daemon and removing port-bind. Goodbye!"

#sudo servide smdb start
exit 0

I haven't actually figured out a way to remap the port bind, though. Never looked into using SSHFS. Seems a lot easier than this, and still easier than using a VPN, naturally, which is way I wrote this script in the first place.
