       sshfs - mount filesystems over ssh protocol


       sshfs [user@]host:[dir] mountpoint [options]


       sshfs  is  a filesystem client based on the SSH File Transfer Protocol.
       Since most SSH servers already support this protocol it is very easy to
       set  up:  i.e. on the server side there’s nothing to do.  On the client
       side mounting the filesystem is as easy as logging into the server with

       linux@marconi:~$ sudo mkdir /media/mount

       linux@marconi:~$ sudo chown linux /media/mount

       linux@marconi:~$ lsmod |grep fuse
       fuse                   38412  0

       linux@marconi:/media$ ll
