I've been using sshfs to mount directories from servers on my laptop.
I also have the following in my ~/.ssh/config: ControlMaster auto
I set this because it keeps a single ssh connection alive whenever I ssh into a server. I do this particularly for fast browsing in emacs using tramp.
Since I have sshfs in my /etc/fstab, the ssh connection from sshfs is the one that stays alive. A lot of times I also need X11 forwarding (ssh -X -Y -C), and since I'm always using the original connection from sshfs, X11 isn't forwarded.
X11 works when I remove the sshfs mount from my fstab, and I ssh into my servers manually with the -X -Y -C option.
Is there a way to turn on -X -Y -C (or the likes) for sshfs? I tried adding ForwardX11 yes ForwardX11Trusted yes
in ~/.ssh/config and /etc/ssh/ssh_config to force the option to always be on (might have security issue). However, sshfs in /etc/fstab does not pick this up.
Do you have any suggestions? Thanks!
