Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I created a key pair to connect to a Synology disk from 12.04. Deployed, edit ~/.ssh/config to automatically use it. Tested:

ssh user@remotesynology

-> works like a charm. Tested on a second remote machine (running Ubuntu server) -> works.

Now tested:

sshfs user@theubuntuserver: /home/user/ubuntuserver

-> works


sshfs user@remotesynology: /home/user/remotesynology

-> error:

read: Connection reset by peer

I had a look at this issue, but that doesn't seem to apply (I have the user in the fuse group, and it works for the other machine) and I don't get a permission denied error.

What do I miss?
