How to mount remote directory on Windows using SSHFS-Win

sshfs makes it convenient to mount a directory from a remote Linux computer on a local Linux computer. SSHFS-Win makes it easy to mount a directory from a remote Linux computer on your local Windows computer.

  • Install the latest stable installer of WinFSP from here.

  • Install the latest stable installer of SSHFS-Win from here.

  • Open File Explorer, right-click on This PC and choose Map network drive. Choose a drive to mount at and in the Folder field enter:

\\sshfs\yourRemoteLogin@remoteComputer

Windows will ask for your password at the remote computer. After that the home directory from your remote computer will be mounted at the Windows drive you chose. I found that I had full read-write access to the files mounted from remote.

Tried with: SSHFS-Win 2.7.17334 and WinFSP 1.2.17346
