Mount remote file system via ssh

Sometimes we need to sync files with different remote servers. We can use rsync, but we need to use cron for that. And this means at a certain time, a request need to be made. So, this involves some memory usage.
By mounting a remote folder, we can easily make synchronization. For this, first we need to install the sshfs.
sudo apt-get install sshfs
To mount a specific folder, we need to write the below command:
sshfs user@hostname: mount point
If you have a customized port:
sshfs -p 3000 hostname: mountpoint
We can set several options with the command, like allow_others, no_remote_lock etc.
sshfs -p 3000 hostname: mountpoint -o allow_others -o no_remote_lock
You can find other options by typing:
sshfs --help
To unmount it:
fusermount -u mountpoint
