I've installed sshfs on Ubuntu 12.04 and I'm trying to connect to a couple of remote servers.
Initially the mount seems successful. Sometimes, Gnome even picks it up and displays the "new device found" box at the bottom of the screen. But from here on there is not much that works. Or at least not any more. The first couple of times I connected it seemed to work fine, and I was able to transfer some files. Then I disconnected using
fusermount -u <folder> and after reconnecting a little later the trouble started.
Now after executing
sshfs -o ServerAliveInterval=15 -o reconnect -C -o workaround=all -o idmap=user root@<host>:/ <folder>, when I change directory into the mount point, the shell just freezes. Strangely,
ls -al <folder> works when listing just the root of the remote system, but nothing more. Also every file explorer I've tried freezes just like
To me, it seemed like there was some kind of zombie thread or something hanging around my system, due to the fact that it did work the first time, so I have tried rebooting but no luck.
sshfs -V gives this:
SSHFS version 2.3 FUSE library version: 2.8.6 fusermount version: 2.8.6 using FUSE kernel interface version 7.12
