First of all, thanks for posting this. I have been looking forward to a port of sshfs to OS X. I was expecting it to be based on FUSE but from the description it seems to be based on something called URDFS. I am usually a little wary of installing kernel extensions, but I bit the bullet and did it and it worked. Mounting a remote directory over SSH worked as expected. However, it is a little slow. Even a simple 'ls' took 2 seconds. Loading a small text file took almost 3 seconds. I'm pretty sure it isn't my connection (I am on a high-speed low-latency pipe -- and pure ssh works smoothly). At present, a remote SMB connection over a SSH tunnel is still much much faster. But this project has a lot of potential and for that I have to give it 4 stars.

This is such a pain in the a** to use if you're not terminal savvy.

Google's own sshfs is a Mac OS X app which is pretty obvious to use and seems much more straightforward than this implementation. It's an ordinary .app you can drag-and-drop wherever you want to install it, no sudo required. More information at

URLs not allowed? Google's web page on sshfs for MacFUSE is at (add the h t t p slash slash colon in front if your browser requires it) code.google.com/p/macfuse/wiki/MACFUSE_FS_SSHFS

The download only contains an installer package...a little more information abou the app and what it does, how it's use would have been nice...!? Especially since it doesn't tell you where it's installed and seems to require root privileges...

I definitely got this, but it looks like sshfs using FUSE is available via fink: http://pdb.finkproject.org/pdb/package.php/sshfs
