I'm running Max OSX 10.9.3 and I'm trying to setup an SSHFS file-share between my MacBook Pro and a remote file system. However, when I try to do it, it doesn't work.
Strangely enough, it makes the target directory disappear. Has anyone else seen this happen? Is it a bug?
First see that I can ssh normally into the target machine:
% ssh remoteuser@XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX # <--- SSH to remote system works! See below. remoteuser@XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX % ls -altr remoteDir total 8 drwxr-xr-x 26 remoteuser remoteuser 4096 Jun 22 01:00 .. drwxrwxrwx 2 remoteuser remoteuser 4096 Jun 22 01:08 . remoteuser@XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX % exit % # <--- Logged out of remote system
Next, I create a directory locally and verify it was created:
% pwd /mnt % ls total 0 drwxr-xr-x 31 root admin 1122 Jun 18 18:34 ../ drwxr-xr-x 2 root admin 68 Jun 23 08:11 ./ % sudo mkdir share1 % ls drwxr-xr-x 31 root admin 1122 Jun 18 18:34 ../ drwxr-xr-x 4 root admin 136 Jun 23 08:50 ./ drwxr-xr-x 2 root admin 68 Jun 23 08:50 share/
Now I try to setup the SSHFS share:
% sudo sshfs remoteuser@XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:remoteDir /mnt/share1 remoteuser@XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX's password: %
Ok. It seems to have worked. No errors. So let's see the share we created, shall we?
% ls ls: share1: No such file or directory total 0 drwxr-xr-x 31 root admin 1122 Jun 18 18:34 ../ drwxr-xr-x 3 root admin 102 Jun 23 08:12 ./
What? Not only is the File Sharing not working, but the share1 directory seems to have vanished! (Although the file system seems to know it is missing, which is weird).
Where did /mnt/share1 go and how do I setup this SSHFS?
