Mount OpenSSH servers as part of the file system {Ubuntu}

I install OpenSSH on nearly all my systems for easy remote access, but until now  have never been able to easily transfer files between the host & client machines.

To do this on a Ubuntu 8.04 client, install the sshfs package via

apt-get install sshfs

Then simply mount drives like this

sshfs /mnt/ssh

where is the server your connecting to

/mnt/stuff is the folder on the server you want to mount

/mnt/ssh is the local folder you want the mount to go

Thats all there is to it!
