- PCManFM uses SSHFS to connect to mount and interact with files and directories located on remote system.
- Methods 1 and 2 (below) have been tested on PCManFM 0.9.9.
- Open PCManFM.
- Type following in address/location bar (and then press Enter/Return key):
ssh://user@server/dir/to/mountwhere user is your username on remote server, server is remote server's URL/IP and /dir/to/mount is a directory on remote system which you need to access (you need to have appropriate access privileges on the directory on remote server to be able to access it).
- Depending on your connection speed, a new window will open prompting you to "Enter password for ssh as user on server". Enter your password in the text box (and then press Enter/Return key again).
- Mount a remote SSHFS share using:
sshfs user@server: /path/to/mount/pointwhere user is your username on remote server, server is remote server's URL/IP and /path/to/mount/point is the mount point on your local system.
- Browse to mount point (specified in previous command) in PCManFM.
- To unmount from a remote SSHFS share:
fusermount -u /path/to/mount/point
