Connection reset by peer error of SSHFS

📅 2015-Jan-24 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 📚 Archive

Problem

SSHFS can be used to mount a directory of one computer on another computer. Trying that gave me this error message: Connection reset by peer

Solution

I was using the hostname of the remote computer. As explained here, this can sometimes give this error. The error went away when I used the IP address of the remote computer instead.

Tried with: Ubuntu 14.04
