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

There will be a shortcut in the user's copssh home directory, pointing to the user's windows home.The way it's done is using a soft link:

  1. Start a bash shell, locally or remotely
  2. Change to the user's home directory if it is not already done
  3. 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.
