Anyone using Slackware and SSHFS?


A friend turned me onto a SSH Filesystem.

Is anyone using this on Slackware?

If so, how is it working out?

thanks

In case you don't know, KDE has this feature

just use : fish://username@host with konqueror

With FUSE and sshfs, you do not need all of the KDE libraries. Some people do not have a powerful enough system to run KDE, or simply dislike KDE...

Thank you for this answer, fuse and sshfs are great.

I just tried it and it worked fine.

I have a file server with videos stored on harddisk which can be used by all members of our family. If I use konqueror and fish://host... all videoplayers (gxine, xine, mplayer) begin to download the video in a local temporary directory (sometimes about 600 MB!!!) and then play it. I don't know why ...

With your solution (fuse and sshfs) I can mount the directory on the host to a mountpoint in my home directory and all videoplayers play the file without downloading it. They play it directly from the other host. Fine ...

Fluxx.

For video stream, I wouldn't use ssh protocol for performances reason,
(the stream is crypted before go through network, which add time and
use more processor and bandwidth resources)

Better use NFS or SMB for video stream

I understand.

When I use NFS and mount the partition with the videos on the server at a mount point at my localhost, I can watch videos with a CPU usage of about 10 to 15 % (CPU P3 1,2 GHz), the datastream coming in through eth0 is about 70 to 100 K (this is shown by gkrellm).

When I use "sshfs IP_server:/directory_with_videos mountpoint" I can watch the videos within the directory mountpoint in my home directory. The results are exactly the same (CPU 10 - 15 %, eth0 traffic 70 - 100 K).

These are my experiences. I do this all in a local network at home.

Fluxx.
