Debian SSHFS , Fuse how to guide

 

login as root

lsmod | grep fuse

if nothing is displayed add the kernel module

modprobe fuse

#check again for fuse

modprobe fuse

… after kernel module update reboot

after reboot check for module being loaded

 
Then mount path
sshfs USERNAME@HOSTNAME_OR_IP:/PATH LOCAL_MOUNT_POINT SSH_OPTIONS

sshfs sessy@mycomputer:/home/sessy /mnt/sessy -o reconnect -C -o workaround=all 


Unmounting

To unmount the remote system:

$ fusermount -u LOCAL_MOUNT_POINT

Example:

$ fusermount -u /mnt/sessy
 

Chrooting

You may want to jail a (specific) user to a directory.To do this, edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config:

/etc/ssh/sshd_config
.....
Match User someuser
       ChrootDirectory /chroot/%u
       ForceCommand internal-sftp #to restrict the user to sftp only
       AllowTcpForwarding no
       X11Forwarding no
.....
Note: The chroot directory must be owned by root, otherwise you will not be able to connect. For more info check the manpages for Match, ChrootDirectory and ForceCommand.
