How can I mount Mac shares on Arch?
I am tired of ftp-ing files all the time to and from the physics dept. here at school. I want to mount my share here at home so I can work with files and data without the hassle of getting and putting files on the ftp server all the time.
I don't think there really is a good solution to this. NetATalk is a server app and its client app is no longer in development. The main campus firewall blocks samba, possibly NFS too.
there was some talk about an ssh sftp share mount program not too long ago. I don't know what the forum topic was...maybe someone else remembers...
It was a kernel module, that when loaded, allowed you to mount a remote ssh/sftp share, just like an nfs or samba share on your local network..
it provided nearly seamless, if a bit slower, shares over longer distances.

It's more than talk - it's shfs, and you can get it in the AUR here - read the comments first.
tomk gave a wrong link.
It's actually here: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?d … s=1&ID=698
Thanks Snowman - sorry about that folks.
Thanks, so far so good except that I cant mount my share as a non-root user. The docs on the shfs site say this:
Is it possible to allow ordinary users to mount shfs shares?
Yes, though it is not enabled by default. Just set suid (chmod u+s) attribute on /usr/bin/shfsmount and /usr/bin/shfsumount.
but it still isn't working.
shfsmount: /mnt/shfs/my_dir: Operation not permitted
Quoting the manpage:
User must be owner (or member of group) of mount_point and must have write access for that directory.
So, changing the ownership of /mnt/shfs/my_dir could be an idea.
