To do this, you need to use the global source password specified in the 
config file.  You just use that password and specify the mountpoint in 
the client.

I'm not aware of any way to do global source auth that would allow for 
separate passwords for dynamic mount creation, but I'm also not really 
aware of a use case for this either.
