I came across this great article that shows how to mount a file system using sshfs. Just thought I would share.
It talks about the sshfs and fusermount commands that allow you to use a remote file system just like it was local. On the local computer where the SSHFS is mounted, the implementation makes use of the FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) kernel module. I believe this to be better than the davfs2 because you don’t have to be root in order to mount the file system.
- Server will files you want to access
- Root access to local box
sudo apt-get install sshfs
mkdir /home/[your username]/mnt
sshfs prod:/home/[your username] /home/[your username]/mnt
fusermount -uz /home/[your username]/mnt
