sshfs – SSH Filesystem Client

sshfs is a filesystem client based on ssh. It allows you to mount remote system folders and access them similar to any storage device. Sooooo coool!!!


Here is the one-liner I use when invoking sshfs:

sshfs -o allow_other -o default_permissions -o IdentityFile=~/.ssh/id_rsa username@ipaddress:/path /local/path

Attribute Breakdown

  •  -o allow_other = allow access to other users on your system.
  •  -o default_permissions = enable permission checking. (By default, file permissions are ignored by SSHFS. This option makes it pay attention.)
  • IdentityFile=~/.ssh/id_rsa = set the path to your private key file

Note: This was tested on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
