Mounting a remote filesystem with sshfs

Tuesday, 21 November 2006, 12:12 AM EST

I recently had need (actually, more of a want thing) to mount a remote server from my laptop. The server in question has NFS running, so I figured it would be easy to mount my home directory on the server to some location on my laptop. It was simple. But when I mount it, all the files in my home directory were owned by some user which does not exist on my laptop. I thought I had tackled this problem in the past and found a way to map IDs from one system to another system when you NFS mount. Googling around turned up “idmap”, but I didn’t find clear documentation on how to configure it to do what I wanted, particularly when I only own the client side.
