Replacing username by your login (family name usually) and awesome by your project name. You can use another letter than x as your mounting point.

  • Enter your iPOP-UP login and password when asked.

Your terminal should look like (in French) :

C:\Users\etudiant>net use x: \\sshfs\hennion@ipop-up.rpbs.univ-paris-diderot.fr\..\..\..\shared\projects\cotech                
Le mot de passe n'est pas valide pour \\sshfs\hennion@ipop-up.rpbs.univ-paris-diderot.fr\..\..\..\shared\projects\cotech.

Entrez le nom d'utilisateur de « sshfs » : hennion                                                                      
Entrez le mot de passe de sshfs :

Edit your files

You can now modify your files directly using a text editor. Be careful, never use word processor (like Microsoft Word or LibreOffice Writer) to modify your code and never copy/past code to/from those softwares. Use only text editors and UTF-8 encoding. Ensure that the “End of Line Sequence” is LF (UNIX-style, and not CR LF), otherwise you might have errors when executing your scripts. For instance if a Slurm sbatch file is not correctly formatted, you will have:

sbatch: error: Batch script contains DOS line breaks (\r\n) 
sbatch: error: instead of expected UNIX line breaks (\n).

Most text editors can be configured to use UTF-8 encoding and UNIX-style line endings.


The server will be disconnected when you switch off your computer or log out. You will just have to type your password to reconnect. You can also remove completly the mounting point by right clicking on it in “This PC” (“Ce PC” in French). This is recommended if you use a computer shared between several users.

Security warning
Never leave your computer unsupervised with your session open and iPOP-UP server connected.
