       SSHFS - filesystem client based on ssh


       sshfs [user@]host:[dir] mountpoint [options]

       fusermount -u mountpoint


       SSHFS  (Secure  SHell FileSystem) is a file system for Linux (and other
       operating systems with a FUSE implementation,  such  as  Mac  OS  X  or
       FreeBSD)  capable of operating on files on a remote computer using just
       a secure shell login on the remote  computer.  On  the  local  computer
       where  the  SSHFS  is mounted, the implementation makes use of the FUSE
       (Filesystem in Userspace) kernel module. The practical effect  of  this
       is  that  the  end user can seamlessly interact with remote files being
       securely served over SSH just as if they were local  files  on  his/her
       computer. On the remote computer the SFTP subsystem of SSH is used.

       If  host  is  a numeric IPv6 address, it needs to be enclosed in square
