How to uninstall MacFUSE
Authored by: MorganizeIT on Jan 22, '07 07:57:07AM

I'm thrilled to see that FUSE has been ported, ssh file systems are a blessing.

I chose not to use the package installer since the site says it's purely a one off, I assume to get folks trying out FUSE. Instead I followed the instructions to compile everything from source which were linked from the original post:

So far I've had no trouble with the mounted shares, and I'm working on benchmarking VS mounted smb shares... my main interest is finding something that performs better than mounted Windows file shares.

If you want the share to show up in the Finder you'll need to pass in some arguments to the sshfs command, e.g.:

sshfs USERNAME@HOST:/DIRTOSHARE /PATH/TO/MOUNTPOINT 
    -oping_diskarb,volname=NAMEOFMOUNTINFINDER ;

The path for the mountpoint can be any empty directory on your system. I created a folder at ~/mount where I have created empty directories for common shares. Using the options above the share can be unmounted via the finder.

If you are still searching after MacFUSE... a very good, fast and Mac native way is the following: http://blog.no-panic.at/2006/07/23/mount-your-server-home-directory-securly-via-a-openvpn-connection/

I switched from Samba to netatalk which is the normal afp protocol native on OS X. This works seamlessly and I have already set up similar things in production environments in several other places (mostly without the OpenVPN option, because it was in a LAN).
