I am using Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.

What I need is to map my FTP server as a local drive - or anything I have write access to - in Finder.

Commercial product: and there seems to be a native way in Finder:… – Pekka 웃 Jun 6 '10 at 11:59
unfortunately, this native way is read-only :( – arik-so Jun 6 '10 at 12:29

Check out the following:

  1. sshfs for Mac OS X

  2. MacFUSE

  3. Macfusion (a GUI for option 2.)

Thanks a lot! sshfs is great. – arik-so Jun 6 '10 at 12:56
It seems as of Lion and Mountain Lion Macfuse, and therefore Macfusion also is f'd. – cosmicbdog Nov 7 '12 at 17:47
The first link is broken, MacFUSE is no longer being maintained, and Macfusion looks ancient. – Flimm Apr 23 '15 at 11:09
@Flimm The first link works fine for me, FUSE for OS X has succeeded MacFUSE and Macfusion, while lacking modern graphics, works extremely well. – Sébastien Fulmer Jun 18 '15 at 18:34

Transmit has this option as well.

I think you meant Transmit. They changed the name years ago. :) – ghoppe Jun 8 '10 at 4:10
@ghoppe Oops, you are correct sir! – Mike Wills Jun 8 '10 at 13:10

You can add a network location without the use of any 3rd party extensions in Finder. Go to Network (Command K) and add your FTP server "ftp://username:password@ipaddress:port" I did this in Yosemite.

sure but all is READ ONLY ;-) – Bruno Garett Jun 16 at 4:34

OSXFUSE allows you to extend OS X's native file-handling capabilities via third-party file systems. It is a successor to MacFUSE, which is no longer being maintained
