#fedihive help please,
many moons ago i came across a modern tool that was perfect as a replacement for sshfs - namely to mount a remote folder as a drive but that it would persist across laptop's power suspends and migrations to different (wifi) networks - local/public...
i lost the link and the name. it's almost like a syncthing but for mounting folders instead for syncing them.
anyone has ideas what this project would be?
I guess I'm looking for a tool that is a combination of
- autofs (automatic on-demand re-mounting)
- syncthing/wormhole (automatic discovery of the mount wherever you are, and persinstence/remounts across laptop suspends)
this wouldn't be needed (autofs/automount would work) if the world would be using IPv6, I guess.
@vu3rdd very interesting project. very close to what i'm looking for, but it seems quite complex. i don't think that was it.
@randomdent Maybe btsync? it turned into a more commercial resilio, but I still use btsync.
I have it set to autostart in kde.
@gemlog that's sync. i need mounting across dynamic networks. something that silently fixes the inaccessible mounts.
@randomdent I've only used sshfs or fish otherwise. I use ssh keys only with no password. If I then use a gui like e.g. dolphin in kde or even mc in a shell I simply experience a slight pause before using it normally (taking into account network overhead).
@gemlog I use sshfs on daily basis. And I love it. I just wish to be able to setup my SO's laptop to automount (yes, looking at autofs) from home, in office 1, in office 2 (all different networks without restarting or remounting manualy.
@taxuswc hey, great link. i downloaded and tried it but it seems to fail at workstation on local lan which don't have a proper dns. for example:
$ ssh email@example.com
$ rclone lsd workstation1:/
does not. it fails with
NewFs: couldn't connect SSH: dial tcp: lookup workstation1.local on 127.0.0.53:53: no such host
tbh, I don't know how to solve it without specifying ip's in rclone config; in our local network dnsmasq handles dns queries.
