Mounting remote folders over SSH


  1. Permanence:
  2. Write permission
  3. Reconnects
  4. Authentication

Install ssh:
sudo apt install ssh sshfs

generate SSH Keys:

mkdir $HOME/.ssh
chmod 0700 $HOME/.ssh
cd $HOME/.ssh

ssh-keygen -t rsa 4096

copy the keys to the server
ssh-copy-id username@remotehost

Do not recommend it

Disable Password Authentication on the:

sudo nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config


PasswordAuthentication no

sudo systemctl restart ssh

Challenges are how to get around default read_only

1) The mounted folder can only viewed using su and graphically must run graphical su equivalent

sudo sshfs user@remote:/home/user/ /home/userc/1/2 -o reconnect -o idmap=user -o allow_other -o allow_root
