    Fail to mount remote pc with sshfs


    Hi folks,

    Ubuntu 11.04 desktop 64bit


    I could access the remote server running;
    $ ssh user@ipaddress

    But I couldn't mount the remote server running;
    $ sshfs user@ipaddress:/path /mnt/remoteserver
    Code:
    fusermount: failed to open /etc/fuse.conf: Permission denied
    fusermount: user has no write access to mountpoint /mnt/remoteserver
    $ ls -l /bin/fusermount
    Code:
    -rwsr-xr-x 1 root root 31320 2011-02-11 05:03 /bin/fusermount
    $ ls -l /etc/fuse.conf
    Code:
    -rw-r----- 1 root fuse 216 2010-01-27 08:28 /etc/fuse.conf
    What shall I do with these 2 files? TIA

    Off the top of my head, I'd say "does the user have write access to mountpoint /mnt/remoteserver"?
    Code:
    ls -ld /mnt/remoteserver

    Hi,

    $ ls -ld /mnt/remoteserver/
    Code:
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2011-09-21 10:30 /mnt/remoteserver/
    Ran
    $ sudo sshfs user@ipaddress:/path /mnt/remoteserver

    To my surprise It mounted the local PC, NOT the remote server.

    $ cat /etc/group | grep fuse
    Code:
    fuse:x:104:
