shfsmount: shfs filesystem not supported by the kernel

I installed the shfs package through pacman, and there is a sshd running on the server.  However, once I enter the command

shfsmount -P<port#> <user>@<server>:/var/www ~/websites/<server_name>/

(with the values in <> replaced by the appropriate values of course), I am able to enter the user's password and then the following error shows:

shfsmount: shfs filesystem not supported by the kernel

I have done some web/forum searching and have not found anything that helps.  I have tried to build the shfs package through abs, but it seems to use an older kernel version (2.6.22) than I have (2.6.27) and the makepkg command errors out with a location-not-found type of error.

I would like to know if there is something in the abs files I need to change for it to use the correct kernel for building, or whether there is a way to get the repository package to work.

I look forward to your responses, and thanks for your time.

Re: shfsmount: shfs filesystem not supported by the kernel

try loading the fuse module (modprobe fuse).

If not having loaded the fuse module is your problem, note that you can also put fuse into the module-list of /etc/rc.conf to auto-load at boot. See sshfs wiki article.

Re: shfsmount: shfs filesystem not supported by the kernel

Well, using the sshfs method did work.  However, shfsmount still returns the same error.  When I installed sshfs, it also pulled in fuse, but doing

modprobe fuse

does not change anything that I can see.  Is sshfs the same as shfs?  They seem to be two different packages.

Also, I am using Xfce with Thunar as my file browser.  When I do the sshfs method outlined in the wiki link above (which does work), Thundar acts like the folder where the mounted stuff is does not exist.  When I hit refresh, the <server> folder will show up for a second, then dissapear.  When I go through a text editor and open a file from there, the file opener can see the folder with no problems.  I can look around in there with the terminal as well.  Is there a way I can get Thunar to view that folder?
