MacOS X - no Shared Path option for SSHFS
February 1, 2023 7:37 AM
Hi, thanks for the great software!
Is it possible to mount some specific server path with sshfs using this application?
Normally I would mount <server name>:<server path>, but there is no "Shared Path" field for sshfs and mounting doesn't work if I use <server path> in "Server Name" field.
Thanks for any ideas

Thank you for the compliment 😊
I'm not a frequent SSHFS flyer, but as far as I recall this is basically a SSH connection (shell access) which does not include a path?
I suppose I'm wrong about that, so let me see what I can do to add a path and see what happens (if this doesn't break SSHFS for other).
I'll have to do some testing (setup a sshfs capable share, install Fuse etc).

Great, thanks a lot!
From the shell, I normally mount an sshfs share using command:
sshfs -o <options> user@server_address:server_path local_mount_directory
With ConnectMeNow I can only mount the root of the shared filesystem as there is no way to provide "server_path".
I can help with testing (with and without server_path) as I have sshfs set up already and I use it daily.

Took me most of the morning but just finished it.
I've uploaded v4.0.6 just now ... you can find it here
Let me know if that worked 😊
Changes are mostly SSHFS related:
- Bug fix: Added path to SSHFS (using root directory if left blank)
- Bug fix: Fixed command-line options bug in SSHFS when using SSH Keys
- Improvement: SSHFS now also supports non "-o" options like compression (-C)
- Improvement: Detect missing SSHFS at an earlier stage when trying to do a mount
- Improvement: Test mount/unmount button only works when a share is enabled (to avoid conflicts)
