SSHFS stands for Secure SHell FileSystem
. Its a filesystem for FUSE
(Filesystem in Userspace) so its possible for unprivileged user to mount the fs over an SSH connection.
On server-site a running ssh-server which understand SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) is needed.
With the built-in SSH authentication and encryption SSHFS is a safe and convenient way for data transfer across insecure networks (Internet).
Installation (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS)
sudo apt-get install sshfs
1. create mountpoint
2. mount (possible without root privileges)
sshfs user@host:/data/ ~/sshfs
fusermount -u /sshfs/
ServerAliveInterval 60 # alle 60 Sekunden
you ever mount 1T Dataspace … ignore that
