Improve the way you handle your SSH connections by relying on this Electron-based, modern-looking, and user-friendly client for SSHFS-Win.
Shipped by almost all major Linux distributions, SSHFS has a long history. SSHFS can be best described as a filesystem client that allows users to mount and interact with directories and files located on both a remote server and a workstation over an SSH connection.
In short, it allows users to mount a remote filesystem using SFTP (the SSH File Transfer Protocol). SSHFS has been ported to Windows a while ago under the name of SSHFS-Win, and it uses Cygwin for the POSIX environment and WinFSP for the FUSE part of its kit.
Even though the system may be considered relatively easy to work with for most experienced Linux users who naturally have the proper know-how to operate it via command line, the easiest way to use SSHFS-Win is with the help of a proper GUI app.
Dubbed SSHFS-Win Manager, it promises to allow just about anyone to get the most out of what SSHFS has to offer on Windows via a modern-looking and quite practical GUI. Of course, it’s worth noting that in order to work with this app on Windows, users must first install both SSHFS-Win on their computers, and follow a small set of installation instructions.
SSHFS-Win Manager is in fact an Electron-based application (a web technology engine that’s found a lot of popularity as of late). The app itself is quite user-friendly and it offers commodities such as a start-up on system start and a close-to-system-tray-like feature.
In addition, users are provided with various authentication methods via a password or via a private key (the latter does not require a password). The app’s main window is comprised out of a Server List on the main left side and a series of useful tools organized in a small panel on the right. From this panel, users can add connections, edit already existing ones, and delete them altogether. There’s also a Settings section that allows them to locate the SSHFS-Win file path (the SSHFS-Win binary file), and that’s really all there is to it.
In conclusion, SSHFS-Win Manager is a very efficient interface tool that should allow any developer regardless of his or her skill level to make absolute most of what SSHFS-Win has to offer. It’s easy to install, simple to work with, and it also looks right at home on modern iterations of Windows thanks to its sleek, grey-themed GUI.
