Setting up sshfs
In order to setup
sshfs on a debian system, I needed to install the
sudo apt-get install sshfs fuse-source module-assistant kernel-headers-2.6
sudo module-assistant build fuse
sudo module-assistant install fuse
While building the fuse module I was asked whether I need a seperate group to be able to use the
fusermount command and whether I want this group to be removed when the package is removed and so on. I answered all the defaults. Finally I put myself in the group which I created while building the fuse module.
That’s it, then logout and log back in so that the group permissions can take effect. Or use the
To mount the remote filesystem I first created a main directory to hold all my remote mount-points.
mkdir server_1 server_2
sshfs user01@server_1:. server_1/
sshfs user01@server_2:. server_2/
ssh keys are already setup for a password less login then you wont be asked a password otherwise a password prompt will be displayed where you need to enter the remote servers password.
