Mount stuff over ssh quickly with sshfs

This little program allows you to mount a folder on a remote system to a local folder using ssh.

Install sshfs.

$ sudo apt-get install sshfs

Use the following command to mount a folder.

$ sshfs user@remotehostname:/path/to/remote/folderĀ  /path/to/local/folder

You don’t even have to be root to mount.

You can speed the process up with key-based access.
