I have a daemon program who need to read in a file who is saved somewhere in my home folder.

But every time I close my ssh connection, this daemon can't read the file because it appear that eCryptfs unmount the home.

Maybe there is an option to force eCryptfs to not only mount with an ssh connection ? I didn't found it.


PS : I know this thread, Why is ecryptfs only mounting private home directory over ssh?, but this is not the proper/good way to deal with the request.
