SSHFS

Hi, all...

Can I use sshfs on HP-UX 11i? What I want to do is; using sshfs I want to mount a remote file system from Solaris 8. Is it possible?

Thanks in advance.

Re: SSHFS

In Linux, sshfs uses FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace): a kernel interface that allows an userspace program to function as a filesystem back-end.

The closest equivalent interface on HP-UX would be pfs_mount, but it certainly isn't compatible with Linux FUSE. In addition, pfs_mount has been deprecated on HP-UX for quite a while: on 11.31 it is already gone.

Unless someone writes the necessary code to interface the sshfs userspace program(s) with HP-UX kernel, sshfs is not usable on HP-UX.
