I have a C# program that will create a fuse and connect to the windows azure storage. Thus i need a mountpoint to specify to it. At present if i created /temp dir and added that entry in /etc/fstab with file system as /dev/fuse. Now if i try to specify this mountpoint, program connects and then hangs there, i don see any output, If i ls this /temp I get reading directory mntpt: Input/output error. This i do ^C and then now if i ls /temp , i get - cannot connect to temp:Transport endpoint is not connected. I cannot guess what exactly is the problem. The code or the mountpoint. So I want to narrow my scope of search. Thus i started this post. Thanks !
