View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sftp mount list

In Nautilus I have a sftp:// mount as favorite, how can I see where it is mounted ?

I am fairly sure Nautilus doesn't mount the remote filesystem, it just provides an abstraction layer to sftp which allows you to use nautilus to drag and drop files etc, but underneath it is running the sftp commands.

You can mount an sftp resource (as it is ftp over ssh) by installing fuse and sshfs.

Then mount the sftp resource like this

sshfs <remote_server>:/path/to/folder /mnt/sftp/<remote_server>

Assuming then that it does get mounted you would be able to find it using

In fact I have just done this on my machine to test what results you would get and this is what I get:

richardjh@ubuntu:~$ mount
... all my existing mount points ...
gvfs-fuse-daemon on /home/richardjh/.gvfs type fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon (rw,nosuid,nodev,user=richardjh)So then I checked to see what is under ~/.gvfs and I see:

richardjh@ubuntu:~$ ls -l /home/richardjh/.gvfs/
total 4
