this problem is really frustrating me. I have the following script to mount/unmount a sshfs upon a vpn connection (vpn-up) and vpn-down. I have this script in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/ directory. When I run the script manually saying "sudo mount-on-vpn asdf vpn-up" it runs fine. But whenever NetworkManager wants to run it it fails and the syslog says "script exited with error -1". I debugged it a lil bit and found that it fails in the "sshfs username@host:...." I am pretty sure the options are correct because when I run the same command (by copy/pasting) on the console it works.
Any idea what could be going wrong here ?
The directories /media/host-common and /meidia-home are all owned by the username and set to 777 as permission.
