After following instructions on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Autofs, I am able to mount directory via sshfs as root, however, autofs doesn't work for me.
/media/sshfs /etc/auto.sshfs uid=1000,gid=1000,--timeout=30 --ghost
remote1 -fstype=fuse,rw,nodev,nonempty,noatime,allow_other,max_read=65536 :sshfs\#me@host\:
ls /media/sshfs/remote1 gives "No such file or directory". Any hints on what might be going wrong?
