New job, unique challenges.

I just found a way to work on a remote codebase easier today. On Linux you can mount a remote filesystem using SSHFS.  Turns out that you can do roughly the same thing on Windows too with Dokan SSHFS.  You can map a remote filesystem to a drive letter and it will open an SSH tunnel and use SFTP behind the scenes to treat it like a mapped network drive.

Download the Dokan library, unzip, and run the installer.

Then do the same with Dokan SSHFS.

Run the DokanSSHFS executable and specify the remote host and username and password/key and pick your Windows drive letter.  Voila!
