How to mount a remote ssh filesystem using sshfs October 28, 2005

Posted by Carthik in ubuntu.

SSH is protocol to transfer files securely. Like FTP, but more secure. Many hosting services offer their client the ability to remotely login to their hosting account using ssh. Transferring files to an from an ssh account can be done using the scp command. However, it would be neat if you could mount a remote folder that you can access using ssh on your local computer, so that you can access files on an ssh account just like they were local files on your pc, right? Well now you can! Mount a folder in an ssh account, edit the files locally and save the files, and the file on the ssh server changes too! Isn’t it awesome!!!

We will use sshfs to acheive our goal. The following guide will step you through the process of mouting file systems over ssh on Ubuntu 5.10 Breezy systems.

       sshfs  is  a filesystem client based on the SSH File Transfer Protocol.
       Since most SSH servers already support this protocol it is very easy to
       set  up:  i.e. on the server side there’s nothing to do.  On the client
       side mounting the filesystem is as easy as logging into the server with

Install sshfs by doing a:
$sudo apt-get install sshfs

This will also install fuse-utils and libfuse2, which are required.

Now, let us create a local directory where you want the files mounted. You should create the directory and make yourseld the owner of the directory:

$sudo mkdir /media/dir-name
$sudo chown your-username /media/dir-name

Where “dir-name” is the name of the directory on your local computer where you want to access the files from the remote computer. Say I want the files on the server to be available at /media/home-pc. I want this because the “server” in this case is the desktop I have at home, which allows me to access it through ssh. Let us use “home-pc” as an example for this guide. “your-username” is your username on the local computer.

Go to System->Administration->Users and Groups, select the group “fuse” and then add yourself to this group.

If you prefer to do it the easy way, on the commandline, then use
$sudo adduser your-username fuse

I don’t want to provide a terminal command for adding yourself to a group since there doesn’t seem to be an easy way to add yourself or any user to a group. The only command I know of is the usermod -G command and for this command, you need to list all the groups the user should belong too, even the ones that he/she is already a member of! Anyone know any better on how to add a user to a new group, without having to know what groups he/she is already a member of?
Thanks Shot.

For security reasons, the /usr/bin/fusermount binary is installed in such a way that users cannot execute it. You will have to log out and log in again, to add yourself to the group “fuse”.

Once you have done the above, you can use sshfs to mount the directory you need on the remote host to your local system!

For example, say I want to mount the “/stuff” directory on my home-run server, which has the domain name “example.com”. I would do it by executing the following command:
$sshfs example.com:/stuff /media/home-pc

Where “/stuff” is the folder on the computer with the domain name “example.com”, which I want to mount and access on my local computer at the location /media/home-pc. Remember that the /media/home-pc directory must exist and be owned by you, the user. I already mentioned how to do this in the initial part of this guide.

If you get the following error:

fusermount: fuse device not found, try ‘modprobe fuse’ first

You will have to load the fuse module by doing:
$sudo modprobe fuse

You can add fuse to the modules that are loaded on startup by editing the file /etc/modules and adding a line with only the word “fuse” in it, at the end.

and then issue the sshfs command above again.

To unmount the directory once your work is done, use the command:
$fusermount -u

for example, in my case, I would use
$fusermount -u /media/home-pc

12. Shot - November 5, 2005

Finally got to play with this, it’s great!

One more comment: “For some reason, the /usr/bin/fusermount binary is installed in such a way that users cannot execute it.?

This is, I believe, by design. The default permissions of /usr/bin/fusermount are
-rwsr-xr– root fuse
wchich mean executable by the fuse group, suiding root.

Did you log out and back in after adding yourself to the fuse group? I did, and I didn’t have to chmod the file. :)

The idea to restrict the access to fusermount is a good one; think of all the pseudo-users who can use fusermount if you chmod the file (man, lp, www-data, nobody, dhcp, syslog, cupsys, countless others).

Tip: To check whether you’ve actually added yourself to a group or still need a reboot, use the groups command. :)

[…] November 5th, 2005 sshfs rocks! I don’t know if you have ever played with fuse (gmail drive, anyone?), but there’s something new for fuse, and it’s way cool. Jochem pointed me here, so credits go to him sshfs is like nfs on steroids, and even better. No hassle with dark firewall settings and unsecure connections, now you can safely mount a remote filesystem, and it is transported over a ssh connection! And best of all; there’s nothing to be changed on the server-side (ok, it should support the ssh2 protocol, but anyone who doesn’t: shame on you), and you can access your mountpoint the same way as any other mountpoint, how cool is that, so CVS commits, chmod’s, cd’s, mv’s, it’s all in the game… Go check it out, because it’s really, really cool!

Good point there! Thanks again.

17. anjanb - November 8, 2005

Hi There,

It will be nice to have a windows port — that will get the biggest userBase for sshfs. This way, I can use mc(Midnight Commander) to access my multiple Linux Clusters.

BTW, does it allow me to have multiple mountPoints ?

Thank you,


18. ubuntonista - November 9, 2005


Yes, you can have multiple mount points — no problems there.

I am not sure what you mean by windows port, but I am sure that with cygwin, there might be someway of using this… unless since it needs the FUSE kernel module, it is impossible to get something like this working in Windows.

That said, I find Linux has far more to offer — much more diverse solutions, and the right tools for the job, for most jobs.

20. Joe - November 24, 2005

This would be so sweet to connect to my work server. When I tried it, though, I got the ‘try modprobe fuse first’ message, and when I tried ‘modprobe fuse’, I got this message:

FATAL: Error inserting fuse (/lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/kernel/fs/fuse/fuse.ko): Operation not permitted

I must warn you, I am a complete Linux noob, but do you have any idea what the problem is/ how I could solve it? Thanks!

21. Joe - November 24, 2005

Nevermind, I realized I’d just forgotten to add the ‘superuser do’ before ‘modprobe fuse’… d’oh! LIke I said, total noob… it’s working now, and how! Thanks for the great tip!

22. Joe - November 29, 2005

Hiya, I have another problem.

I’ve got the remote server mounted using sshfs, but when I use the file browser in ubuntu, I can’t create folders or copy files to it. Getting stuff from it is fine, but whenever I try to copy a file TO the remote destination, I get a message telling me I don’t have enough space. I’m also unable to delete files or create new files.

I’m guessing this is a permission problem – my local user is ‘joe’ and the remote user is ‘root’. Is there any way (other than 777 permissions) to get this working? Would setting up a ‘joe’ user on the remote machine give local ‘joe’ the needed permission?

Everything is fine, util I type following command:

sshfs @: /media/c

So something, some service, is ‘too old’ on WinSSHD or something like this.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for the heads-up on fuse and sshfs!

FWIW, you should really remove this line from your howto:
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/fusermount
You’re opening a security hole there.

When your UID is added to a new group, you need to either log out and log back in, or you need to run “newgrp fuse”.

You should try to keep world-executable SUID binaries on your box to an absolute minimum. If there’s a security problem with that binary, you’ll be immediately rootable (at least locally).

35. Joe2 - March 17, 2006

I’ve got the same question as my namesake above (reply #22): it doesn’t allow me to copy/move/rename files in the same way that I can with local files or, for example, as I can when I do the “Connect to Server” function in Nautilus. Nautilus tells me I can’t change these files because I don’t own them (maybe because the UID on the remote computer is not the same).

So for now I’m mounting using sshfs to mount and read files and a standard ssh connection to write them. This seems unnecessary, so I’d like to hear what I’m doing wrong.

36. Matt - March 25, 2006

I get the same problem as joe and joe2 above…can browse, but no write access… any ideas?

37. Matt - March 25, 2006

It’s only nautilus that seems to have a problem though. I can do things from a terminal and if i open a file in a txt editor it seems to be able to save it back ok. Just no drag and drop file management :(

38. ubuntonista - March 26, 2006

Matthew, Shot, I have now edited the instructions to suggest logging out and logging in again to be able to mount the sshfs directory.

Matt, Joe2 and Joe,

I beleive those are nautilus problems. I used to get (and still do get) errors like “There is no space” to copy something, when there is 50+ GB of free space on the remote dir!

Use command line mv, cp etc to move files in, or use Konqueror if you dont mind using that :)

39. PDemong - March 27, 2006

well it’s a shame…
I know a way with Kubuntu, konqueror and the fish protocole : it’s possible to browse through an ssh connexion, and permissions are respected. But I ‘d prefer to keep Nautilus and Ubuntu. I really dont want to switch on KDE.

44. El - May 11, 2006

Firstly sshfs is cool and thanks for the helpful article.

This is off topic I fear but perhaps someone can help …

Anyone familiar with GNUCash? I was hoping that sshfs would allow me to stick my account files on a server so I could access them from whatever machine Im on, but I am getting this when I open the account:

“WARNING!!! GnuCash could not obtain lock for /xxxxxx/Accounts. That database may be on a read-only file system, or you may not have write permission for the directory. …”. It then warns that I *may* not be able to save changes.

This is not the case of course. I can write to that directory/those files (when opened with fish protocol or when I browse to the sshfs mount point). Incidently, an Accounts.LCK file is created if I press the button to open anyway … But when I click save, the Accounts file is replaced with the temporary file .fuse_hiddenxxxxxxxxxxx which promptly disappears leaving me with no data whatever.

Any thoughts? Thanks.

To mount sshfs so that nautilus can write to the folders just mount like this.

sshfs -o uid=500,gid=500 me@myserver:/home/me /local/mount

That should do it. You will need to cange the uid and gid to your uid.
To get your uid and gid just type in the following.
id -u
id -g
That will give you the values that you should use.

I hope this helps

I tried to mount a folder of a unix machine from my uni, for which I’m the owner. I created a folder /media/unix9e on my laptop and made myself the owner and granted all rights. I could mount the unix folder without any problems. But I don’t have the rights to change files :s. Before the “sshfs …” command the folder looks like this:

drwxrwxrwx 2 marnix root 4096 2006-11-06 14:48 unix9e

After the mount command the folder has changed to:

drwxr-xr-x 1 2132 130 4096 2006-11-02 13:15 unix9e

So the rights and ownership have changed, and I can’t do anything about it. Does this depend on our unix machines, and should I ask our system admin? Previous posts have mentioned the same problem I think, but so far no solution :(

Really like the concept of sshfs. It works, but is slow as molasses with some of the large files (files >30Mb) I have to grep through. Like 30 to 40 times slower than being on the actual box. Any one know any performance tweaks. Thanks

67. Jim Cooncat - January 4, 2007

Yar, I’d run the grep as a remote command with ssh, rather than using sshfs to do the job. Like:

ssh me@remotecomputer \
grep -i “wtf” bigfile.txt > bigfile.txt.grepped.txt

Then you can pick up bigfile.txt.grepped.txt with sshfs.

This way, grep runs on the remote computer, rather than hauling the whole file across the network.

This succeeded, but from the debug output, it looked to me like Fuse was literally trying to mount the directory named “~”, which of course I wanted converted to /home/user (or equivalent) on the server. When I spelled it out on the command line (`sshfs user@host:/home/user some_directory/`), it worked.

I also did an experiment. I tried the following command:

$ sshfs user@host:/foo some_other_directory/

And that worked, with the same result (question marks all around) although /foo also does not exist on the server. Clearly, the sshfs interface could use a bit of additional error reporting.

Regardless of all of this, thank you Carthik for this bit of useful reporting.

SuSe 10.2 — x86_64


sshfs comes with SuSe.
I followed your instructions and everything worked great!
Just one observation:
Using Yast I added a new group (called fuse) and added my user to it.

Congratulations. The text is very clear and direct.

79. Russ - February 20, 2007

This was working yesterday, but today I get:

fusermount: failed to open /dev/fuse: No such file or directory

The directory does in fact not exist…. and yet this was fine the day i installed it.

80. Konse - March 1, 2007

Let’s make it easier!!!

(in german: http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/FUSE/sshfs)

1. a line fuse in /etc/modules
2. the package sshfs installed

3. a line in /etc/fstab
sshfs#username@yourserver:/pathonserver/ /yourmountdir fuse uid=1003,gid=100,umask=0,allow_other 0 0

and now the best an easiest:
4. a line in menu->system->settings->sessions->startup
sshfs username@yourserver:/pathonserver/ /yourmountdir

That’s awful -> with starting the session, there is a password-question and no need of terminals!!!!

I can’t install sshfs on Ubuntu Edgy, this is why:

$ sudo apt-get install sshfs
Lendo Lista de Pacotes… Pronto
Construindo Árvore de Dependências
Reading state information… Pronto
E: Impossível achar pacote sshfs

The last line in English (I think): “that’s impossible to find out the sshfs package”

But there is the sshfs package at http://packages.ubuntu.com/edgy/utils/sshfs

What I’m doing wrong, please?

More information:

Thanks in advance.

85. Vinicius - March 9, 2007


Now, I know the answer and I would like to suggest the following:

For newbies, the sshfs for Ubuntu Edgy (https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/edgy/i386/sshfs/1.6-1) is obtained from the repository (or component) Universe, which you can use through Software Repositories (https://help.ubuntu.com/6.10/ubuntu/desktopguide/C/extra-repositories.html)


86. Vinicius - March 10, 2007

I think it’s not so easy to use sshfs:

a) I can logon by ssh normally:
“vinicius@ubuntu:~$ ssh -i openssh_vinicius_at_ubuntu vinicius@fedora
Last login: Sat Mar 10 02:25:26 2007 from
[vinicius@fedora ~]$

b) but I can’t do that with sshfs:

vinicius@ubuntu:~$ sshfs vinicius@fedora:/home/vinicius ~/sshfs-vinicius-at-fedora
Permission denied (publickey).
remote host has disconnected

What I’m doing wrong, please?

Local (client): Desktop Ubuntu Edgy 6.10
Remote (server): Fedora Core 6

Thanks in advance.

87. Vinicius - March 10, 2007


After editing /etc/ssh/ssh_config:

IdentityFile ~/openssh-vinicius-at-ubuntu
PubkeyAuthentication yes

I was able to use use sftp and sshfs.

If you have a default sshd_config at the SSH server and a default ssh_config at the client then the use of sftp or sshfs will be easy. But generally to increase the security: we change the port, enable only publickey authentication and so on.

93. David Peterson - May 18, 2007

Attention Ubuntu Edgy users:

When I tried to use sshfs to mount a remote filesyste, I was receiving the following error:

fusermount: failed to open /dev/fuse: Permission denied

The fuse module was installed (and contained in /etc/modules). I had added myself to the “fuse” group. Everything seemed set.

So, I did a bit of tracking-down the problem … For some reason, when I installed sshfs on Ubuntu Edgy, the /dev/fuse device was created with ownership root.root (i.e. user and group = root).

To fix the problem, I had to change the group to “fuse” to get this to work:

$ sudo chmod root.fuse /dev/fuse

Once this was done, sshfs worked fine for me on Edgy. HTH someone!


94. David Peterson - May 18, 2007

Oops – just a correction to the above post.

I meant to say:

$ sudo chown root.fuse /dev/fuse

(Not chmod, sorry).


95. gcalm - May 23, 2007


You might want to replace:
$ sudo adduser your-username fuse

$ sudo adduser `whoami` fuse

for people (like myself) who get an error, hit themselves over the head, and then replace the ‘your-username’ to, well, their username.


96. eMulo - May 23, 2007

At lest in Debian, /usr/bin/fusermount has an execution flag for “fuser” group; so, just add your username to this group.

97. Mark Ford - May 26, 2007

I too was having problems writing files in gedit yet if I used vim it works without problem. I have found the problem is caused by the backup feature of gedit i.e. it seems to try and create a backup before writing. Quick-fix-solution; disable backup creation in gedit.

98. Tobias Bengtsson - May 30, 2007

the rename syscall does not seem to work properly over sshfs.
It always give permission denied when renaming to an existing file.
touch foo; ltrace sed -i ‘s/foo/bar/’ foo 2>&1 | grep rename
rename(“./sedZhKQIw”, “foo”) = -1
vfprintf(0xb7f97560, “cannot rename %s: %s”, 0xbff5db34cannot rename ./sedZhKQIw: Operation not permitted) = 50

another example:
touch foo bar; mv foo bar
mv: cannot move `foo’ to `bar': Operation not permitted

mv -b foo bar

101. JyBy - June 12, 2007


Sshfs seems the ideal solution for me, but I could not make it work. I have the same problem than Gerard Doets above (comment 64): after mounting, the mount point is not accessible, and shows only quotation marks for uid, gid and access rights. John L. Clark (comment 79) mentionned that the same behaviour is seen when mounting a non-existing file (or one which name was not solved well, such as including ~), but I did check that my file exist, and I give its full path on both machines:

sshfs -o uid=1000,gid=117 me@myserver:home/me/Shared /home/me/Shared

I am under standard kubuntu feisty, installed begining of June 2007. I installed sshfs through dselect, which installed fuse as dependencies. I added myself to the group fuse, and changed by hand the group of /dev/fuse. I can connect between my machines with ssh without any problem.

Not sure if its posted in the above comments but a quick ctrl+f for it didn’t reveal anything so here ya go…

To add a user to a group from the command line I use the following command (Not sure of

 tag is supported but I'll give it a shot, if not please omit them):

gpasswd -a  

This has to be done as root and as long as the command is run properly it should be safe. There is plenty of room for error as well, but if someone is not paying attention at all it is possible to remove entire groups with this command.

Carthik, thanks a lot for this tip – You made my day! :)

I was looking for a solution to directly edit remote files on a webserver via Netbeans IDE 6.8 on Ubuntu Lucid (10.04). Unfortunately Netbeans does not support “Drag and Drop” if connected via a standard ssh connection to a remote server using Gnome’s Nautilus. This may be a restriction to Java on Ubuntu – not sure though. Currently there doesn’t seem to be a plugin for remote files for Netbeans (I know, I could change Netbeans project settings to edit remote files as well, but that’s not what I wanted). Mounting a remote file system via sshfs and FUSE works like a charm, woohoo! :) Now I can drag and drop files into Netbeans or open files via the “Open File” dialog in Netbeans.

Thanks again! I hope other Netbeans users may find my comment useful.
