Problems with sshfs and permissions?

Post by namarie3 » Fri Jan 12, 2018 5:16 pm

I am currently running Mint 17.1 on several different computers. I also use my main computer as a server and mount directories to the other computers with sshfs. Everything has been working well for years, but I've been having problems with one computer (that is a converted chromebox) that is on the same internal network as the server.

On the chromebox, if I use ls -l in the /mnt directory before mounting the directories, I get this output:

Code: Select all

cairo@cairo /mnt $ ls -l
total 24
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jan  5 23:12 Movies
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Dec  9  2016 Movies-Adult
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jan  1  2017 Music
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Dec  9  2016 Storage
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jan  1  2017 Television
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Dec  9  2016 Television-Adult
However, when I mount these directories using mount -a, I now get this output with the ls -l command:

Code: Select all

cairo@cairo /mnt $ ls -l
ls: cannot access Television-Adult: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Television: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Music: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Movies: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Storage: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Movies-Adult: Input/output error
total 0

d????????? ? ? ? ?            ? Movies-Adult

d????????? ? ? ? ?            ? Television-Adult
I have copied the exact same /etc/fstab info into different computers, and I have no problem at all mounting these directories except on the chromebox mint. On the chromebox, once I get the input/output error, I cannot event move into these directories within the terminal let alone the file manager. I have made sure that my user, cairo, is part of the fuse group.

It looks to me like it is a permissions problem. Any advice? Thanks!
