With SSHFS you can mount any file system on a remote host over a SSH secured connection to your local host.
Gui / Linux
You can mount a directory over SSHFS using the Gnome "Connect to Server" tool in the desktop Places menu.
- Remote host must run the ssh daemon
- Successful authentication with the remote host
- FUSE kernel module installed on local host, have the right as user to load FUSE file systems (=be in group fuse)
- SSHFS tools installed
For SSHFS tools you need the following packages: sshfs, fuse-utils and libfuse2
apt-get install sshfs
the other two are dependencies
sshfs remoteuser@remotehost:/path/to/remote_dir local_mountpoint
fusermount -u local_mountpoint
