How to mount sftp

Recommended Posts

Gnome has a new feature called Places > Connect to Server > SSH which in case is a secure ftp connection however gnome mounts it somehow (it doesnt use /etc/fstab) and is able to open the folder and import/export files.

 

I want to know if I can do something similar from the command line or from Midnight Commander.

 

Also the KDE alternative is using fish, my question is, is there any resource or howto on doing this from the command line.

I use sftp via konqueror.

In the address window, I type:

sftp://lynchmob@192.168.0.xxx

and am prompted for a password to the lynchmob account on the 192.168.0.xxx computer and then am connected.

I have /etc/hosts set up so I can use aliases:

192.168.0.1  computer1.local comp1

and, so, all I need type to reach the host named computer1.local is:

sftp://lynchmob@comp1

How would I go about doing this from the command line?

 

Would it be something like a mount similar to a NFS?
