"It's a dangerous Internet out there, kids. If you are going to
work on remotely connected machines, do it safely. Simple file
transfers and interactive sessions have scp and ssh respectively;
in fact there is hardly a commercial Web hosting provider left that
doesn't support them. For more complicated scenarios we have VPN
tools. But what if you need to work with files on a remote server,
but find scp tedious in repetition and FreeS/WAN too cumbersome?
You might find just what you're looking for in sshfs -- a tool for
mounting a remote filesystem transparently and securely as if it
were just another directory on your local machine.
"sshfs is primarily the work of Miklos Szeredi, a Linux hacker
from Budapest who is better-known as the creator of FUSE, the
Filesystem in USErspace framework that makes sshfs possible.
Szeredi was already working on FUSE when he discovered Florin
Malita's similar project named LUFS and its SSHFS
