SSH is a very convenient tool on Linux that can be used to SSH Port Forwarding on Linux, Proxy Using SSH Tunnel and others besides its basic functions (remote shell). We can also use SSH to mount a remote folder to a local directory.
We can use
sshfs to mount remote folder through SSH tunnel securely over network.
sshfs by yum:
$ sudo yum install sshfs
Mount folder on sever to local folder
Then we can use
sshfs to mount a remote directory:
$ sshfs username@server:/path/to/folder /path/to/mount/point
We can unmount the directory by
$ fusermount -u /path/to/mount/point
