Mount remote directory as drive :D

This would be really awesome if you could mount the remote dir as a drive. i noticed it is already in your wish list.

just out of curiosity, is there a way of doing this in windows without winscp? It would allow me to automate the process of scp'ing to a remote machine. any help would be appreciated.

If I would know about such a solution, I would not have developed WinSCP :) (I guess that the previous sentence in not grammatically correct, but you probably understand what I mean.)

You can use some command-line SCP client to automate SCP (e.g. PSCP)

Perhaps samba?

You could run SAMBA on the linux machine, then it would be available as a network share and you could mount it as a drive on your windows machine.

I'm not quite positive about the security of SAMBA, but I believe it's secure enough.

Just a thought.

This would be incredibly awesome

Wow! It would be fantastic if SCP could be used to mount remote directory as drive X:

I'm designing a corporate LAN and most of our internal servers only allow SCP access for security reasons. Unfortunately Macromedia Dreamweaver, Microsoft Front Page, and Adobe Go Live do not have SCP options. If you could make this feature, it would be a life saver. I wager that website designers around the world would also LOVE this option.

Lets face it, when it comes to servers, it's a UNIX world. But most web development is still done on the PC. You'd be helping lots of folks!

As for the SAMBA option. According to my sys admins at my job, it's still not as safe as SCP. :(

Now THAT is one hell of a good idea!
It could really help and make so much stuff ever so more easy.

Hope this will be on the full release of WinSCP3

As Matt said, it would really be a life saver.

Or even if it just made a folder that another application can see/write to. This would solve the dreamweaver etc problem. I'm not a windows developer so I don't know but that might be easier than making another drive.

Just getting off topic but if you can't let other ports be opened, just port forward your applications using ssh connection, or create vpn.

Not sure if WinSCP has port forwarding option, but PuTTY does the job.

Sorry for grave raping ...

... are there any new plans for this?

SCP mounting is something i totally get used to with on linux, alternatives like samba are just way to much overhead and generally its not always possible to get additional software running on a rented server. I would absolutely apprecate such a feature on Windows build in with great software. (There are solutions nowadays, but properitary buggy ones)
