SSHFS - remote host has disconnected [SOLVED]

So, I am trying to mount stuff using sshfs. I followed this guide, and to my frustration, I keep getting this (with the debug option):

[C911@MightyComputar ~]$ sshfs root@tardis:/ mymountpoint -p 22 -d
FUSE library version: 2.8.5
nullpath_ok: 0
root@tardis's password:
remote host has disconnected

If I try a different port (specifically port 21), it basically just hangs, and the mountpoint folder is gone untill I do a fusermount -u mymountpoint.

Now, I should say that I can run ssh root@tardis, and everything is fine and dandy.

The remote box is a NAS, Synology DS411j, running Linux (wouldn't have it any other way).

I have looked through a bunch of posts and googled for hours trying to find a solution to this, and so far no cigar.
Does anyone here have any idea to what would solve this?

Re: SSHFS - remote host has disconnected [SOLVED]

Did you try:

sshfs -o sshfs_debug root@tardis: mymountpoint

Also, is sftp subsystem active on the server?

It's all GNU to me.

I found the path to the sftp subsystem was incorrect a while ago (probably had changed at some point and I didn't merge in a .pacnew). Check this line in /etc/ssh/sshd_config on the server and make sure the path is correct.

Subsystem       sftp    /usr/lib/ssh/sftp-server

Re: SSHFS - remote host has disconnected [SOLVED]

Hello again,
I'm sorry for the late response - Something must have gone wrong because I did write back shortly after you replied, but it apparently didn't get posted properly.

Anyways, as I wrote in the now non-existant post;
This was where the problem was at. I ran this command to find the sftp-server location.

find / | grep sftp-server

This found that there was two different locations with sftp-server, and after trying the second one in the list (in my case, if I remember right, /volume1/@optware/sftp-server) it worked beautifully.

Thanks to both of you, you both were right about where the problem was smile

Oh, and sorry again for the late reply.

Marking this as solved!
