SSH-FS-Fuse HowTo


James Mills


A very useful and nice way to mount remote file systems is to use sshfs-fuse. This allows you to mount a remote file system over an SSH connection. Here's how...


Prepare your Kernel

The latest series of 2.6.x kernels now come with FUSE (userland file system) support built-in. You only need to compile your kernel from source and ensure it matches your running kernel. For older kernels, please install fuse from ports.

See: Building a Kernel?

Install sshfs-fuse

$ prt-get depinst sshfs-fuse


$ sshfs user@host:/some/path/ /some/local/path
