I want it to work like NET USE G: //mylinux/home/myuser

I want it to work like NET USE G: //mylinux/home/myuser So I can use SSH secure protocol anywhere. If WinSCP does not support it, do anybody know another program that support it?

I want this too, but I don't know how to do it :-)
I know only few FTP programs that can do this, for example Webdrive. But I don't know such SCP/SFTP application. And I think there is no such. There are so few normal SCP/SFTP clients, that I would know about one, if it exists.

Actually the linked page says:

WebDrive integrates a WebDAV, FTP, or SFTP server into the Windows desktop by mapping it to a network drive letter.
So there should be support for SFTP.

Alternative is to simulate a virtual IP address inside windows PC like the one in the screen shot of http://www.colinux.org/
http://www.colinux.org/screenshots/network.png

Now if you can run a service like Samba for that IP Address from windows, people will be able access it like a network drive.

This will also allow other PC in network to access the new virtual IP address

I belive those projects will be happy to help you in this

You can do that with samba.
if SMB/CIFS is somehow unaccessible and only ssh(tcp 22) is allowed, you can "tunnel" the smb session through ssh. adding sftp drive mount feature to winscp is redundant imo.

I just ran into this, and thought I'd point out that the code used for it might allow similar things to be used for WinSCP integration wtih Explorer (i.e. such that you could mount a remote server to a drive letter).

I've checked the app, but I think that it does not mount a virtual drive. It just extends functionality of Windows Explorer (icons, functions...). Mounting drive is much more low-level feature. It is not about Windows Explorer it is about Windows-system.

ssh virtual drive

Please try to add this feature. A virtual ssh/sftp drive would be the thing I'm searching for a long time.
