How do I access files/drives/resources outside the Copssh root directory?

    • Start a bash shell, locally or remotely
    • Change to the user's home directory if it is not already done
    • Link a directory or network share to a local name by using ln command


ln -s "/cygdrive/d/pub/" "pub"

 creates a link from D:\pub to pub in the user's home directory.

 ln -s "//myserver/netdata" "netdata"

 creates a link from \\myserver\netdata to netdata in the user's home directory.

Now, the user can use pub and netdata to access D:\pub and/or \\myserver\netdata respectively.
