How to install & Mount files using SSHFS


SSHFS is an application that allows you to mount your folder to a remote server. Its very easy to install and configure with simple one line command

To install SSHFS use the following command

#yum install sshfs

Let’s do this on two servers by mounting a folder of one server with another server but let me make a folder first

#mkdir /tmp/mnt

A folder in tmp with name mnt has been created, now I will mount this folder remotely to another server 

Let’s say that other end IP is 192,.168.21.2

#sshfs  Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam. Necesita tener JavaScript habilitado para poder verlo..2:/ /tmp/mnt

Now all of your files which are present in mnt folder will be present in the second server 

If you ever feel to unmounts your folder just use the following command

#unmount /tmp/mnt
