       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 brackets.

               user   only translate UID of connecting user

               file   translate UIDs/GIDs based upon the contents of uidfile  and gidfile

              perfectly on sshfs, and this confuses some programs.  If that happens try disabling
              hard links with this option.
