sshfs, fuse, RHEL 5 quick config

Date May 28, 2008

I 4get too much those days, this post is just to remember me how and where i got rhel (this should apply for Centos 5 too) packages and how to configure it quickly :)

i used dag.wieers.com(for fuse and sshfs-fuse) and atrpms.net (for fuse-kmodl) packages.

[root@m1 ~]# uname -a
Linux m1 2.6.18-53.1.19.el5 #1 SMP Tue Apr 22 03:01:13 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
[root@m1 ~]# cd downloads/
[root@m1 downloads]# wget http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/fuse-sshfs/fuse-sshfs-1.9-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/fuse/fuse-2.7.3-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm http://dl.atrpms.net/all/fuse-kmdl-2.6.18-53.1.19.el5-2.7.3-8_9.el5.i686.rpm
[root@m1 downloads]#
[root@m1 downloads]# rpm -ihv fuse-*

now the packages should be installed, to mount it:

[root@m1 downloads]# sshfs shareUsr@m2:/mount-this /mount-here

to umount it:

[root@m1 downloads]# fusermount -u /mount-here

thats all..

update:

to allow other users share/see this mount point add – allow_other option

ex:/

[root@m1 downloads]# sshfs shareUsr@m2:/mount-this /mount-here-o allow_other
