I use curlftpfs for a lot of servers, but it fails for out speedport router. If I log in with filezilla, I get forwarded to /mnt/LexarUSB_Flash_Drive/16_STICK.

When I have it mounted in a folder, I see no contents (although there is with filezilla), and when I try to create a new file, I get a permission denied.

Is there a way how I still could mount this?

With curlftpfs "speedport.ip/mnt/LexarUSB_Flash_Drive/16_STICK" "$tempdir" I get Error connecting to ftp: Server denied you to change to the given directory.

I do not entire understand your question, so using curlftp shows no files, but filezilla does? – ppumkin Dec 14 '11 at 17:15
Yes. Filezilla tells me that I get redirected to another folder, but curlftpfs just shows an empty folder. – Martin Ueding Dec 14 '11 at 17:22
I wonder if curlftp ignores the redirect that the ftp server tries to impose on the client.. some servers instead of chrooting the folder.. it issues a redirect command after successfull login... Can you issue a change folder command to the same folder as you see in filezilla on the curlftp? It should go there with no problem. – ppumkin Dec 14 '11 at 17:26
You mean to mount the root with curlftpfs and then drill into the tree? I do not see a single dir, so I guess this does not work. Or do you mean the whole path when connecting? – Martin Ueding Dec 14 '11 at 19:09
the whole path, the tree wont be available. – ppumkin Dec 14 '11 at 19:10
