Simple TCP FUSE File System Publisher's description
from Tomi Ollila
Simple TCP File System is a FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) based networked file system.
Simple TCP FUSE File System is a FUSE based networked file system. It consists of 2 parts. A network server daemon that is started on the (remote) host and a FUSE module running in user-space on the local host. Server component is launched via SSH and after client and server have communicated and created separate TCP connection for data transfer SSH link is shut down.
So, this provides somewhat the same functionality than sshfs, but security traded for speed. If security is not an issue, this is useful at least in the following situations: 1) Either machine is low-end. 2) The machines has important high-load application(s) running. 3) One wants to see real statvfs values.
Client requires FUSE headers and libraries, server does not. Currently C99-capable compiler is needed to compile both client and server, but with little effort on the code, this requirement can be removed from the server component.
To compile both client and server, enter ``make all``.
Enter ``make client`` or ``make server`` to compile either component.
For developers/testers: Enter ``make debug`` to compile debug build.
After client compilation on "local" machine (where directory is to be mounted) and server compilation on "remote" machine (from where directory is mounted), move server component to a location that is on your PATH. In many cases entering command ``cp stfufs-server $HOME/bin/stfufs-server`` does the job. During initial testing, client does not need to be copied anywhere, but for permanent use it is good to be get somewhere in your PATH.
These examples expect stfufs (client) is found in your PATH. During initial testing on stfufs source directory, use ``./stfufs ...``
In it's basic form, the usage is pretty same as with sshfs_:
``stfufs remote:[directory] mountpoint``
This instructs server try to bind on ports in range 13668 - 14658, on 10
port increment and if succeeds to bind on any, listen for client to connect
on that port.
