I'd like to have a local directory be mounted upon logging into a remote server via SSH. So if I were to ssh into foo.bar.com as user baz then there would be a directory mounted in /home/baz/roaming - that corresponds to my local workstations roaming dir - for the length of my connection.

My local workstation in this case is a Mac, but the methodology is likely more generally *nix in nature. Most likely an SSH wrapper would be necessary that performs some sort of mount related actions after a new ssh connection occurs.

Has anyone done this? Suggestions or existing utilities would be very helpful!

    If you can SSH back from whence you came, you could probably do some .bashrc magic to use sshfs to mount a location on the system you logged in from at $HOME/mnt. – DopeGhoti Jan 16 '14 at 19:56
