Mount SSH filesystems
My personal favorite: Fuse4X
Use with this distribution of SSHFS: https://github.com/fuse4x/sshfs
See my dedicated blog post on SSHFS on Mac OS X 10.6.8 with Fuse4X!
Deprecated Option: MacFUSE sshfs using command line
First install MacFUSE.
Then get the sshfs binaries:
cd ~/Downloads svn co http://macfuse.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/filesystems/sshfs/binary sshfs-binaries
Now you are able to mount remote folders to a local directory. Here is an example command line:
cd ~/Downloads/sshfs-binaries ./sshfs-static-leopard email@example.com:/home/user/ ~/mountpoint -oauto_cache,reconnect,volname=somename,defer_permissions
defer_permissions option is very useful as you automatically have write access if the remote user would be able to modify the content of the directories (but your local wouldn't). I found the hint here.
Cyberduck (http://cyberduck.ch/) is a great tool to connect to remote filesystems. It doesn't mount them but it is very helpful in most situations.
MacFusion is a GUI for the use of the use filesystem tool macFUSE. It leverages the use of the command line tools such as
sshfs-static-leopard. At the moment you need a trick for it to work:
cd /Applications/Macfusion.app/Contents/PlugIns/sshfs.mfplugin/Contents/Resources mv sshnodelay.so sshnodelay.so_bak
