Mounting your service on a Windows OS local machine

To mount your service on a local Windows machine, you will first need to install SSHF-Win and WinFSP as dependencies.

Please make sure to remember to restart your PC after installing these 2 dependencies before proceeding to next steps.

After you have installed the 2 dependencies needed. You will then need to mount your service as a Mapped Network Drive.

  • Open your Windows Explorer by pressing Win+E
  • Next, right click This PC and click Map network drive...

  • Select the Drive: letter of your preference
  • For Folder: use the path \\SSHFS\
    • username is the username of your service
    • hostname is the server your service is on
  • Check the box Connect using different credentials
  • Finally, click Finish

  • You will then be presented with a login box requesting your service FTP/SFTP password
    • You can check the Remember me box to save your password

You will now see your home path mounted at the drive letter you selected in the previous steps. If you selected Remember me then your mount will automatically be remounted upon restarting your Windows machine.
