sshfs on Tomato?

    Has anybody tried / has experience in getting Tomato working as an SSHFS client? That means, mounting a remote filesystem on TomatoUSB via SSHFS ( using the fuse subsystem.

    Would be great to get some feedback if this is possible or if anybody has done something like that.

    sshfs is available via Entware (package name: sshfs).

    root@gw:/tmp/home/root# opkg list | grep -i sshfs
    sshfs - 2.2-2 - Mount remote system over sftp.

    Is there some light version of Entware?
    On my WRT54G v2 I have only 64.00 KB - 700KB free (depending on how severly stripped Tomato I run).

    There is no "light version" of Entware; the term in itself makes no sense. Entware, just like Optware, requires you use a CIFS share or a USB flash drive (latter is not available for you due to use of a WRT54Gv2).

    sshfs and fuse require a large number of kernel modules and other stuff, too big to fit on a flash-limited router.

    So your options are to use a CIFS share (using a Windows machine somewhere on your network that is always powered on), or to purchase a router that has a USB port that is known to work with TomatoUSB.

    Ok, thanks for clarification.
    The part of the purpose of sshfs was to not having to have a 24/7 CIFS machine, or to change the router.
    So I guess I can put it out of my mind for now ;)

    Never done this, (don't have a WRT54g) but people have added a SD card reader to them see for example.

    I believe Tomato supports this, but others would have to verify this.
