Mount FTP-server in debian using curlftpfs

curlftpfs debian ftp

Mounting remote ftp

The following will mount your remote FTP-location in /mnt/my_ftp. Note that FTP is not secure, and you should combine this with a secure session.

sudo curlftpfs -o allow_other \
  ftp-user:ftp-pass@server_ip /mnt/my_ftp/

Unmounting ftp

You’ll probably have to sudo this, depending on who mounted it where.

fusermount -u /mnt/my_ftp_folder
