This afternoon I upgraded from Mavericks to Yosemite and attempted to mount a catalog in a server using sshfs (that I had installed using homebrew). This worked flawlessly before the upgrade. However after the upgrade I got an error regarding not being able to run unsigned kexts - I ran the following command to circumvent that issue:

sudo nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1"

And it seemed to fix the issue. But then I kept getting two other errors:

remote host has disconnected


failed to mount PATH: Socket is not connected

My console has the following to say about it:

614 KernelEventAgent[66]: tid 54485244 received event(s) VQ_DEAD (32)

Any idea what gives? I've tried upgrading homebrew and then checking for updates, but there were none for sshfs. I also tried uninstalling sshfs and then installing it again to no avail.

Thanks in advance!

  • I am using OSXFUSE 2.7.1 from OSXFUSE website on Yosemite without any notable issue. Did you try brew doctor?

  • I did just now - got warnings about updating, unbrewed dylibs and .la - files (libfuse4x.2 among others). I removed them and then pruned the dylibs, got no more warnings, but the mounting still gives me the "remote host disconnected"- error :( Oct 20, 2014 at 8:01

"Solved" it, it worked if I tried connecting to the IP adress of the server rather than the DNS.. still have no clue what the problem actually is, but at least now I can work :)

  • Thanks for this, I have a feeling this has saved me quite a bit of time!
