Subject Re: [vfs] Putting a VFS behind a sftp server
Date Tue, 27 Apr 2010 04:55:38 GMT
Yes, VFS has support for sftp. I don't personally use the ftp or sftp providers but I know
lots of other people do.  However, your question has me confused. When you say "I'd like VFS
to be accesssible via sftp" I'm not sure what you mean. VFS is a client layer that provides
a File-like interface to access resources that are accessible via protocols with a file-system
like structure, such as FTP, WebDav, etc.

Basically, I'd like the VFS to be accessible via sftp.

possible to just mount an vfs in a unix file system?
