  1. Download and install Putty, WinSSHFS and Dokan from following links.
    Putty: https://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/w64/putty-64bit-0.74-installer.msi
    WinSSHFS https://github.com/feo-cz/win-sshfs/releases/download/1.6.1/WinSSHFS-

  2. Open PuTTYgen then click "File" - "Load private key" and select your private key file.
    If you do not see your file, change the view for "All Files (*.*)". Click Open.

  3. Click "Conversions" then "Export OpenSSH key". Confirm by clicking Yes. Name your file and save wherever you want.

  4. Now you can configure your Network Drive. Run WinSshFS (the shortcut should be on the desktop).

  5. Click Add and fill in the fields as below.

    Drive Name: [Type the name of your connection.]
    Host: [Your VM floating IP]
    Port: 22
    Username: eouser
    Authentication method: PrivateKey
    PrivateKey: [Your generated in PuTTYgen key file path.]

    Drive Letter: [Choose the network drive letter]
    Mount at login: [Check if you want to mount the drive every login.]

    Click Save and Mount if you want to mount the drive now.

  6. Right click on the Sshfs Manager and click on “Run at startup”. Now every time you log in to the system Sshfs Manager will start automatically and mount the drive.
