Sshfs on private server

Has anyone installed sshfs successfully on his private server? I get an “operation not permitted” error while installing fuse-utils:

creating fuse device node…
mknod: `fuse-’: Operation not permitted
makedev fuse c 10 229 root root 0660: failed

Then sshfs fails with

fusermount: failed to open /dev/fuse: No such file or directory

Thanks for any tips.


It won’t work – sshfs depends on FUSE being compiled into the kernel, which we don’t have. Sorry.
