Note! This manual is based on a clean Ubuntu or Debian installation. Installation of additional software might require changes in the workflow and/or configuration.
Note! To install programs and mount volumes you will need full access rights. In this whole manual we will asume that you are logged in as the root user.

Create a folder where you want to mount the Mammoth Volume
You can change the mapname to whatever you want.

sshfs -o allow_other,default_permissions <USERNAME>@<HOSTNAME>:/<PATH_TO_HOMEDIR> /mnt/mammoth
Change <USERNAME> to the username of the Mammoth Volume, and <HOSTNAME> into the hostname. If you do not have this information at hand, please follow the steps on this page to get this information.
<PATH_TO_HOMEDIR> needs to be changed to the full path of your homedir. To find this, login via SSH, make sure you are in your homedir with the 'cd' command, and next enter 'pwd' followed by an enter to show your homedir location.
