Today I will be setting up SSHFS, which will allow me to mount a remote folder as a local folder by using SSH.
In this example, I will be creating a folder called remotestorage which will link to a remote folder on a remote server.
First thing we need to do is install SSHFS:
sudo apt update && apt install -y sshfs
Then we need to create the local mount point, just like this:
sudo mkdir /mnt/remotestorage
Now, we can manually mount the remote folder:
sudo sshfs [email protected]:/ /mnt/remotestorage -o allow_other
Log in as requested, and you should be able to see the contents of your remote folder.
If you want to unmount, we just need to do this:
sudo umount /mnt/remotestorage
It's possible to have it automatically mount when the system starts, but it's a bit of a security risk and I wouldn't recommend it.
