    This article is excellent, thank you very much.

    I did run into one snag on my CentOS 7 server. I have password-less SSH enabled, but when I edited /etc/fstab as instructed it would result in a parse error.

    What ended up working in my case was

    sshfs#[email protected]:/home/tecmint/ /mnt/tecmint fuse defaults, allow_other 0 0

    I hope this helps someone.
