When prompted for passphrase just hit enter to go without it
nevillegroup@shell:~$ ssh-keygen Generating public/private rsa key pair. Enter file in which to save the key (/home/nevillegroup/.ssh/id_rsa): Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase): Enter same passphrase again: Your identification has been saved in /home/nevillegroup/.ssh/id_rsa. Your public key has been saved in /home/nevillegroup/.ssh/id_rsa.pub.
We need to add our public key into authorized_keys file and upload it to the remote host into the .ssh directory.
nevillegroup@shell:~$ cat .ssh/id_rsa.pub > authorized_keys
Now we can create a bash script for mounting the remote directory
!/bin/bash USERID="YOUR_UID" USER="example" HOST="example.com" MOUNT_DIR="/home/example/examplecom_sshfs" # create dir if it doesn't exists if [ ! -d "$MOUNT_DIR" ]; then umount $MOUNT_DIR &> /dev/null mkdir $MOUNT_DIR fi # to check your uid use command `id` sshfs -C -o uid=$USERID,ssh_command='ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa',workaround=rename $USER@$HOST:. $MOUNT_DIR
Add executable flag to the file and you ready to mount with the script
nevillegroup@shell:~$ chmod +x bin/sshfs_examplecom nevillegroup@shell:~$ ./bin/sshfs_examplecom nevillegroup@shell:~$ ls /home/example/examplecom_sshfs dev/ git/ logs/ sub/ web/
