I've run into a problem with
sshfs that I haven't seen before.
I mount serverB to serverA by doing the following (while logged in as root on serverA):
mkdir serverBLink sshfs root@serverB:/ /home/myname/Documents/serverBLink
Once I do that, from the commandline I'm able to see all the files on serverB via the serverBLink folder. Business as usual.
However, I cannot access the serverBLink folder using File Manager on Ubuntu. I don't know why. I thought it might be a permissions thing because I'm technically signed into the computer as "dot" but in the commandline, I've switched to root... ??
As a test I tried running
chmod 777 on the serverBLink folder to grant everyone access to everything inside but it still doesn't work.
Using File Manager, when I try to access the serverBLink folder, I get the error message:
Could not enter folder
