Sshfs Client



If you're still ISO a Windows SSHFS client, I'm using MountainDuck, which is authored by the same folks as CyberDuck FTP client. I like the SSH key feature. The biggest advantage I can see is that you don't have to open additional ports on a router or create extra firewall rules.

SSH is a secure remote connection protocol used to manage and get a shell from remote systems. SSH is mainly used by Linux distributions. SSH also provides a secure file share over the network which is names as SSHFS.

SSHFS is named as file system. We need to install SSHFS file system package for Linux systems.

Windows provides different 3rd party applications those supports SSH and SSHFS. Here a list of them.

  • WinSCP
  • SSHFS
  • Dockany

In this tutorial, we will use the most popular one WinSCP. WinSCP can be downloaded from the following link and installed by Next->Next fashion.

Linux can mount SSHFS file systems in different ways. In this part, we will use sshfs command directly. We will provide the remote system IP address or hostname with the path we want to mount. We will also provide the local path we want to mount to. We can also use options about the SSHFS file system.

We will use sudo in order to mount to the /mnt. We will also provide remote user which is ismail in this case.

We can list all ready mounted SSHFS file systems with the mount command. We will filter with the grep file like below.

One of the most faced problems is writing to the SSHFS mounted directories. Because during mount we use sudo which will mount with the root privileges. This will cause other users cannot read or write to the mounted directories. We can use -o option with the allow_other to enable to read and write to the SSHFS mounted directories.

SSHFS service is provided over SSH port and uses SSH for authentication. SSH can authenticate users in different ways like password, private key etc. We can use a certificate in order to authenticate the user. In this example we will use IdentityFile option with the certificate path.

We will just provide the IP address or Host name, username and password for the SSHFS mmount. We can also change the drive letter where the remote system will be mount.

Sshfs Client Python

We can unmount the SSHFS file system for Linux distributions. We just need to provide the path we have already mounted. In this example, we will unmount from /mnt with the umount command. Keep in mind that the mounted path shouldn’t be in use.
