How to mount your Atlas home on your computer

Using sshfs it is quite simple but could be a little bit on the slower side of life.


  1. Make sure you can ssh into the cluster without problems, e.g. gsissh works fine.
  2. You need to have sshfs installed (it's a fused based module), e.g. sudo apt-get install sshfs


Now it should be very simple. Assuming you want to have your Atlas home under ~/ATLAS (assuming it exists), then just type

sshfs -C -o ssh_command=/usr/bin/gsissh ~/ATLAS

substituting your user name for USER.


Before disconnecting from the network you should unmount it with
fusermount -u ~/ATLAS
