Question: How to mount/unmount MathNet home directory using sshfs ?
Date: Aug 22 2012
We use "sshfs" to mount your MathNet home directory securely.
For your convient, we created a sshfs script in "/usr/local/bin/mathfiles".
For usage, type 'mathfiles' at the command line terminal.
Before running the 'mathfiles' script, you must ssh to our ssh
proxy server first.
This will store your new RSA key to your virtual server home dir.
Type 'ssh 22.214.171.124'
Type 'yes' to to continue connecting. This will store your new RSA key.
Type 'exit' to logout
To mount Mathfile, Edit .bash_profile and remove these hashes.
$ vim .bash_profile
To unmount mathfiles after logout, Edit .bash_login and remove these hashes
$ vim .bash_logout
Logout and Login your VM again.
You need to supply your MathNet passwordd twice.
Once for your VM and once for mounting your MathNet's home directory.
Confirm your MathNet location
You should see your MathNet files.
If you are running batch jobs, don't edit the bash_profile and bash_logout
to use sshfs during login/logout period.
Instead, sshfs mount and unmount MathNet files manually.
Do not save anything important on your local VM disk since it has limited snapshot and backup.
