SSHFS questio


Hello,

I got a problem with using SSHFS. I write a script that mounts a remote server's folder to a local machine automatically using sshfs. Here is the script called sshfs-connect:

#!/usr/bin/expect -f
set password [lrange $argv 0 0]
set ipaddr [lrange $argv 1 1]
set username [lrange $argv 2 2]
set timeout -1
spawn -ignore HUP sudo /usr/local/bin/sshfs -o allow_other $username@$ip:/remote/path /local/path
match_max 100000
expect "*?assword:*"
send -- "$password\r"
send -- "\r"
expect eof

The scripts runs fine invoked using the command:
/home/ec2-user/init/sshfs-connect password ip username

However, when I try to invoke this from a Java program (which is started at boot time) in the following way:
Process p = new ProcessBuilder("/home/ec2-user/init/sshfs-connect","password", "ip", "username").start(),
it seems works. Since after the Java program executed, I check the /etc/mtab, it contains the following line:
username@ip:/remote/path /local/path fuse.sshfs rw,nosuid,nodev,max_read=65536,allow_other 0 0

But I can't access the mounted files. For example, using "ls", I got nothing. Also, once it's accessed(in any way), that line is removed from the file /etc/mtab.

Any idea? Many thanks!

my first thought is that this just sounds mental. Why are you doing this?? wrapping stuff with expect can be the only way to acheive some things, but this is just to enter a password? why not just use ssh keys?
