Hi there. Personally, to accomplish this I would just use some sort of startup script calling sshfs, but since SSHFS is a FUSE filesystem, it is possible to mount it via fstab.

The issue will be authentication: since you normally have to type in your password when you call sshfs, you will need to have SSH keys set up in advance, so you can run "sshfs" without needing to enter a password. (Look up "ssh key-based authentication" for information about that.)

After that's done, I would try out some of the fstab entries on these pages:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/710149/how-to-convert-sshfs-command-to-fstab-entry
https://superuser.com/questions/669287/automount-sshfs-using-fstab-without-mount-a

If you can't get those to work, what kind of problems are you running into?

Hi.

After creating the ssh keys and access by ssh to the file server without username and password.
I wrote the following line in the FSTAB file and it worked correctly.

Thanks for your support, I am very happy.
