SSHFSAndroid

SSHFSAndroid


SSHFSAndroid is SSHFS (SSH FileSystem) for Android devices. It allows you to mount directories from any SSH server to your Android device. Whenever a remote filesystem is mounted, its files will appear as if they are stored locally on your Android device.

Have a media collection that just won't fit on your phone?
Mount and stream it with SSHFSAndroid!

Sorry for the long, long wait, everyone – SSHFSAndroid now (experimentally) supports Android 5.0+!


DISCLAIMER:
====================
This is an *ALPHA* release. SSHFSAndroid is a personal side project of mine, not my day job. As such, I am unable to do $X hours of testing on $Y number of different devices. As much as I would like to, I cannot guarantee perfection. Please rate with all of this in mind. If you encounter issues, please send me an email before rating negatively. Thanks! :)


PREREQUISITES:
====================
- busybox (with symlinks)
- su (root)
- FUSE support (in-kernel or fuse.ko module)

Note: The stock kernels in Android versions >= ICS should have in-kernel FUSE by default. If you are using a custom kernel, you might not!

*** PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE THIS APP IF YOU HAVE NOT VERIFIED THAT YOUR DEVICE MEETS THE REQUIRED PREREQUISITES. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. IN CAPS. ***


FAQ:
====================

Q: Why can't my media player find the files I've mounted with SSHFSAndroid?
A: Android's media scanner will not scan remote filesystem mounts. Try using a file-based player that does not rely on Android's media scanner.

Q: Can I use public key authentication? I can't get it to work.
A: Public key authentication is supported ("Advanced Options" > "IdentityFile"). However, your key file must not be password-protected and your public key must be copied to your server (typically via ssh-copy-id) beforehand.

Q: How do I use option $X in "Advanced Options"?
A: Check man pages for ssh and sshfs for documentation.
SSH: http://linux.die.net/man/1/ssh
SSHFS: http://linux.die.net/man/1/sshfs

Q: Why doesn't option $X in "Advanced Options" work?
A: Sorry, but I (probably) don't know. SSHFS has a ton of options; too many for me to test. A lot of options aren't even relevant on Android devices. The advanced options were only included out of posterity and are predominantly untested.

Q: My server listens on a port other than 22. How do I configure that?
A: "Advanced Options" > "Port". Easy!

Q: If not /mnt/sdcard, where should I be mounting to?
A: Mounting under /system seems to be the most stable. I suggest something like: /system/sshfs/mount_point_here

Much improved Works now on Android 5.1, the profile creation screen is a bit finicky though, often is make a profile then it wouldn't be there. Some quality of life issues, some thought needs to be put into the ui flow.

"Could not connect to server". No logs, no further info. Tried both pubkey and password authentification few times. Tried by hostname and by ip. LG G Pro 2, Android 4.2 UPD: got it. I'm just missing fuse.ko. Will retry after flashing to another firmware

No longer works. Doesn't work in Android 5.0 Lollipop. This app used to be AWESOME! Unfortunately the app hasn't been updated to work with Android 5.0 Lollipop.
