Mount FTP as filesystem

CurlFtpFS is a filesystem for accessing FTP hosts based on FUSE and libcurl.


localhost ~ # emerge net-fs/curlftpfs in gentoo
localhost ~ # apt-get install curlftpfs in ubuntu/debian
localhost ~ # ./configure && make && make install by the manual way


localhost ~ # modprobe fuse if you dont have fuse module loaded
localhost ~ # curlftpfs /mnt/mountpoint


localhost ~ # fusermount -u /mnt/mountpoint

Thats it, now you can access with any file explorer like konqueror, nautilus…..we can do almost everything like edit source code

Adding on fstab /mnt/mountpoint fuse rw,uid=500,user,noauto 0 0

or Making alias
alias mHost=’curlftpfs /mnt/mountpoint’
