OSX Fuse 2.3.2 + MacFusion 2.0.4 fails to read/write files via sshfs. It could mount the volume, but many operations did not work because of "no privilege to read", while I could move/delete remote files.

If you upgrade your MacFuse to this *BETA* release:
http://www.tuxera.com/mac/macfuse-core-10.5-2.1.9.dmg

And sshfs is at this version:
http://osxbook.com/download/sshfs/sshfs-static-leopard.gz

Then it should work fine in Lion, but it is BETA software, so you install it at your own risk, but so far so good for me.

We are using it on Snow Leopard 10.6.4 It was installed with the latest version of Paralles. I would assume that means we have the latest version of MacFusion???

Here is a sample of the Error message we are getting when we try to copy something to the drive or save something to it.

"The Finder can't complete the operation because some data in “c12_t2_p000.jpg” can't be read or written.
(Error code -36)"

Any ideas on what is happening here?

It does not work for me. I get the following error message: "Could not mount filesystem: Remote host has disconnected." Is anybody else having the same problem?

The "Update to fix SnowLeopard compatibility" breaks MacFusion on Snow Leopard. Version 2.0.3 (creation date Mar 31, 2010) still works fine on Snow Leopard.

Schneiderc had trouble on 16 Jun 2010
I am trying to mount an externat drive mounted to a dedicated IP. The drive a WesternDigital ShareSpace. Trying to mount as a shared drive using FTP.

I am able to mount the drive successfully and can see all my folders. The MAJOR PROBLEM is that everything is "read only", cannot save any files to the drive.

We are able to save files to the drive via an FTP utility, as well as mount the drive via a Windows computer. We are also able to mount the drive and read/write to the drive if we are connected to the local network.

Got excited when we tested it locally and worked, but failed remotely. Anyone have a solution? Really thought MacFusion would be the answer.

Appears to no longer function under Snow Leopard. Not sure if it's a MacFusion or MacFuse issue (or both). Hopefully theses issues get resolved quickly as they both are indispensable tools.

I can't seem to add favourites in version 2.0. I can connect to server, but the Favourites menu item is greyed out as are all the menu items in the configuration box.

Otherwise it's fantastic as always!

You should be able to add favorites by clicking the plus button in the main window (not the menuitem).

Should be fixed now. You can either re-download it from Macupdate, or do a "check for updates" from Macfusion's menu. The new version is 2.0.1.
Apologies to all!

I am not able to save my password for an FTP mount with v2.0.1 on Mac OS 10.5.4. When I check "Save Password in Keychain" and click OK to mount it says "The application ftpfs_askpass quit unexpectedly" and then slides down a notice - "Could not mount filesystem: Mount has timed out." Would love to be able to save passwords and load them from the keychain.

I've noticed this too, but I occasionally have keychain issues anyway so I put it down to that. I'll do a repair permissions before I put it down to macfusion.

Great app!
But i couldn't manage to show the mounted servers in the finder sidebar. They only show up on the desktop, although the finder shows servers which are mounted local via afp.

I want to like this app, but so far all it does when I try to connect to an FTP server is beachball ALL my apps for upwards of 5 minutes (I can't do anything at all with the mac, in any app!) then says unmounted next to the FTP account in the MacFUSE list when it is finally done with this.

Going to have to stop using MacFusion until they update it properly. Regardless of which user I use to connect to a server with (including root), I no longer have write access if I connect via MacFusion. I'm backing using sshfs for Darwin until MacFusion gets the bugs out. Too bad, MacFusion is super easy to use versus sshfs, which has no UI. Same problem with 1.2beta2 as well.

abton had trouble on 15 May 2007
Had the same problem with MacFusion not storing port numbers. It appears that if you add a server that is not currently available (due to network problems, for example) the port number always defaults to 22 rather than the one you specify.

If the server is available then it works fine. A small bug but annoying.

Apart from this, nice software.

ABTON and MACPERSON0852,
this was a bug with the OK button, first noted on 11th May, fixed on the 15th and verified on the 16th. This fix will be incorporated in MacFusion 1.1, which should be available soon.

##

In the meantime, the workaround is to

hit the Enter key

to enter your entries.
(Don't click the OK button)

This bug hit a few people - including me - apologies for any inconvenience!

Regards
