How to mount your pphome on your personal laptop/computer OUTSIDE of RHUL

Note: The following tutorial applies to both Mac OS X and Linux, however it requires SSHFS and I haven't been able to get SSHFS to work under OS X since it has a strange implementation of FUSE and requires some minor hacking. Once I've got this running on Mac OSX I will update this tutorial.
 Make sure that you can ssh into linappservX successfully, because we are going to use and ssh-tunnel to mount your pphome.

Depending on your distributions you will have to use a different package manager to install sshfs, for Ubuntu just run:

Now you need to get SSHFS, depending on your os follow the appropriate bit. The mounting instructions are the same for both Linux and OS X. I didn't include Windows since a) you should use SMB (not sure you can from the outside) and b) SSHFS requires installing Cygwin under Windows.

On Linux Depending on your distributions you will have to use a different package manager to install sshfs, for Ubuntu just run:

 
[User@Machine ~] sudo apt-get install sshfs

Now create a new directory where your pphome will be mounted and run the appropriate sshfs command:

On Mac OS X For OS X it's a little more complicated, you'll have to install MacFUSE from here, once you've installed it, make sure you go into the preference pane and check "Show Beta Versions" and click update. Once you've done that you download the pre-compiled SSHFS binary (for Leopard but works in SL), extract it and copy the binary to /usr/local/bin. Make sure you close and re-open your terminal.

To mount your pphome create a new directory where your pphome will be mounted and run the appropriate sshfs command:

 
[User@Machine ~] mkdir /Some/Directory
[User@Machine ~] sshfs jblanco@linappservX.pp.rhul.ac.uk:/home/jblanco
