Description:

This program is an easy to use front end for sshfs. The main limitation right now is that there is no way to enter a password at runtime to sshfs, so you should set up your ssh server and client to do a password-less login with RSA keys or some other sort of key exchange. This shouldn't be a big problem for most home users. I will work on a way to get password input soon. Any ideas on how to accomplish this easily are more than welcome.

Also, if you choose to start konqueror via this tool, you will have to close that konqueror window before closing this tool. If anyone knows a way around this also, please let me know.

This program requires sshfs and all its dependencies, as well as kommander.

sshfs allows a user to mount the filesystem of a remote computer as a local file system so that all local programs can access files on the remote computer as if they were local. This is a very easy and secure way to do file sharing.

Read more about sshfs here: http://fuse.sourceforge.net/sshfs.html

There is an sshfs how-to here: http://ubuntu.wordpress.com/2005/10/28/how-to-mount-a-remote-ssh-filesystem-using-sshfs/

(this how-to is aimed at k/ubuntu users, but should be easily adaptable to users of other flavors of linux, etc.)

My real motivation for making this was due to the fact that playing mp3's over xine backend programs (amarok, kaffeine) doesn't work in the least, and no one seems to mind (I've reported the bug several times).

The one thing I would think many users will try to do if they have multiple computers in their household and are networked, is play an mp3 from say, their desktop while using their laptop.

And yes, the fish protocol is great, but doesn't work with amarok or kaffeine.

I suppose the other advantage of this is that programs that don't support kioslaves (command line programs, gnome-based programs, etc) can also access the shared files seamlessly.

I don't see the point in using sshfs while we already have fish that comes with KDE and works very well. Anyway, if you still have to use it, this program looks cool.
