    Cannot mount truecrypt volume over network

    Is it possible to mount a truecrypt container located on another computer on the local network? I'm connected to the other computer via ssh, but when I browse to the file container on the other computer, I get a "permission denied" error when I try to mount it. I am running truecrypt 6.1 and ubuntu 8.04.

    Have you checked the permissions of the Truecrypt container on the other machine? Does it belong to another user?

    In a terminal, type: ls -l /location/of/truecrypt/container (/home/test/containers/container1, etc)

    use sshfs instead to mount the remote folder into the local filesystem.

    It seems that I have read/write permissions on the truecrypt container. I have also tried connecting to the other computer using sshfs and still get the 'permission denied' error when I attempt to mount the volume.

    I can even create a new truecrypt volume on the other computer over the network, just can't mount it.

    I'm having identical problems in 8.10.

    I am having the same issue. I can connect via sshfs and create new TC containers over the network. However, when I try to mount it I get a 'permission denied' error. I have also tried creating a container locally and I'm able to mount it. Then transferring the container over to my server and attempting to remount it but I get the same error. Anyone out there actually able to do this or get it working? Thanks.
