This is a useful command when you want to interact with a remote folder as if it was on your local drive.
# First create a local folder to mirror the remote one mkdir /path/to/local_folder # replace <user> with the username # <host> with the remote hostname or IP address sshfs <user>@<host>:/path/to/remote/filer /path/to/local_folder
Now you can access your remote folder as if it was any other local folder.
To unmount the folder
# to unmount sudo umount /path/to/local_folder
For more options, like -p for the port or -o password_stdin to supply a password, check out the manpage of sshfs.
