    Hi I am trying to write an Applescript to Mount a remote volume on the desktop.

    I have this

    tell application "Terminal"
    do script "/usr/local/bin/sshfs me@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:/Volumes/data/myDropbox /Volumes/data/Desktop/myDropbox"
    end tell

    This opens a Terminal with the command, then it's waiting for the password. That's where I got stuck. How do I enter the password in Applescript?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can't. The only solution is to setup public key authentication with the server so that a password isn't needed.

    Hi Intell,

    Thanks for the reply. That's a great idea except that I am not sure how to use the public key for sshfs. I can ssh and sftp to the server with the key just fine but I don't seem to find any useful info about that for sshfs.
