SSHFS-Win - SSHFS for Windows
SSHFS-Win is a minimal port of SSHFS to Windows. Under the hood it uses Cygwin for the POSIX environment and WinFsp for the FUSE functionality.
How to install
- Install the latest version of WinFsp.
- Install the latest version of SSHFS-Win. Choose the x64 or x86 installer according to your computer's architecture.
How to use
Once you have installed WinFsp and SSHFS-Win you can start an SSHFS session to a remote computer using the following syntax:
For example, you can map a network drive to billz@linux-host by using the syntax:
As a more complicated example, you can map a network drive to billz@linux-host at port 9999, but give access rights to the local user billziss by using the syntax:
It is also possible to map the remote root directory by starting the
path with a double backslash as in the following example:
You can also mount the remote's root
/ directory using the following format:
You can use the Windows Explorer "Map Network Drive" functionality or you can use the
net use command from the command line.
GUI front end
SiriKali is a GUI front end for SSHFS-Win (and other file systems). Please report problems with SiriKali in its issues page.
This is a very simple project:
sshfs is a submodule pointing to the original SSHFS project.
sshfs-win.c is a simple wrapper around the sshfs program that is used to implement the "Map Network Drive" functionality.
sshfs-win.wxs is a the Wix file that describes the SSHFS-Win installer.
patches is a directory with a couple of simple patches over SSHFS.
Makefile drives the overall process of building SSHFS-Win and packaging it into an MSI.
SSHFS-Win uses the same license as SSHFS, which is GPLv2+. It interfaces with WinFsp which is GPLv3 with a FLOSS exception.
It also packages the following components:
- Cygwin: LGPLv3
- GLib2: LGPLv2
- SSH: "all components are under a BSD licence, or a licence more free than that"
