OK I just can't figure this out. I have an EC2 instance, which I'm able to SSH into just fine with:
ssh -i XXXX.pem ubuntu@XXXX.com
I can even make it slick from the command line by creating a ~/.ssh/config with this in it:
Host XXXX HostName XXXX User ubuntu IdentityFile ~/.ec2/XXXX.pem
Which allows me to simple do a
ssh XXXX with no -i option.
Now, I want to mount this via SSH. I've tried MacFuse/SSHFS, MacFusion and ExpandDrive, but no luck. It's supposed to "just work" but the SSH-related command line utilities and the Keychain Access program in OS X is confusing and opaque to me.
From what I've read, these GUI programs don't care about .ssh/config, they care about the Keychain. Somehow I can associate my domain name I'm connecting to with a particular "identity" private key file (.pem file) but I have no idea how. I tried this:
ssh-add -K XXXX.pem
Which does add to the Keychain but it's not associated to a particular domain.
These GUI mounting programs I mentioned all just spin and do nothing when I try to connect passwordless. No keychain prompt, no nothing. I've pretty much given up and I'm thinking about just setting up an SMB server, but I'd rather just go over SSH since I believe it's possible.
