sshfs, shfs and sftp
Since I find FTP slow and limiting (not to mention lower security) I have decided to try using SSH for all of my file transfer needs for web site management. So, I have asked for and got an SSH access and am now trying options of using SSH for file transfer.
Now, shfs seems to be good, but it freezes my system when I try to access the mounted space with nautilus or thunar.
Shsfs however has a strange problem (at least how I perceive it). After I mount a remote space to say /mnt/remote and view its content with ls command I can normally see all files permissions as set on the remote server. I can also normally edit and delete the stuff in it. However, when I view that same directory using nautilus or thunar it is showing it as read only to me. Nautilus also says that I am not the owner of it so I can't change permissions.
So I either must be missing something or something is wrong somewhere. What do you think?
Also, ultimately, what would you recommend for use between sshfs, shfs and sftp?
