Dokan SSHFS 0.6.0 released

January 12th, 2011 in SSHFS

Hello, I just released Dokan SSHFS 0.6.0.

This release doesn’t include a installer and doesn’t support Explorer extensions which add a context menu to mounted drive and permission setting dialog. If you want those features, please install the previous version and overwrite DokanNet.dll and DokanSSHFS.exe by files in this version.

I have two troubles on the development of Dokan SSHFS.
The first is SSH authentication issue. Dokan SSHFS has issues around network connection because it depends on SharpSSH library and there are some issues in that library. And I can’t fix the issues.
The second is Explorer extensions. I don’t have building environment of those extension libraries, so I can’t provide any updated installer.
I wish I could provide a good SSHFS application in the future.

    With the authentication currently broken, what functionality is still working? Also, do you know if the issue with SharpSSH library is going to be fixed any time soon?

    Hello, Hari
    I got some feedbacks about SSH connections such as
    The issue is that Dokan SSHFS can’t connect some type of servers. SharpSSH supports some of SSH authentication protocols. All features working fine in my environment though. I’m not sure about the development of SharpSSH, but it has stopped for many years.

    Could you tell us what configurations are known to work? I have seen the link that you pointed to, and commented before. From the comments there, it seeme like many common configurations don’t work. I would love to know what works though. Thanks.

    DotNetSSH ( is a fork of SharpSSH that seems to be more actively maintained. Being a fork, I assume it has a mostly compatible API.

    I don’t find the Explorer extensions critical, but Dokan SSHFS can’t connect at all to the server I want to use it with (the Tahoe-LAFS SFTP frontend, which is based on the SFTP server in Twisted Python) due to issue 21.

    Hi, excellent program but i just cannot find any good instructions how to mount remote drives, the doc files do not give me the information i need. Maybe someone can help me with the following:

    - how do I mount to folders (c:\blabla\subblabla\remote_mount) instead of drives?
    When i start the dokanSSHFS.exe (interface start) i only can enter a drive letter, no folders, so how to enter a folder?

    - how can i mount using commandline, what commandos must i use, no information on that at all. Easy to use in a .bat on start up.

    - most important one i think, how do i automount on startup windows?
    I make my mounts and save them in dokanSSHFS.exe, when windows7(x64) boots it should automount these fusemounts, this does not happen now, or is it possible by .bat file (see point above)
    Programs which run and must access data which is remote and i access by using sshfs can not be auto started because the mount is not running yet. How to fix this?

    If these points are not possible will they be possible in the near future?

    (keep up the good work!)

    Hi all,
    I’m getting some troubles while directly editing remote files with my favorite editor, emacs. In deed, I often end up with extra characters at the end of the file being edited. I had to check the difference between the file seen by SSHFS and the true actuel file by using FTP.

    May be some cache issues, but I don’t know how to set up appropriate parameters…

    Otherwise, great job. Much faster than Expandrive ;)

    Discovered this DOKAN software and it honestly is looking like it might resolve an issue I have had with mounting a remote drive. My issue, like others I have read above, is it doesn’t appear that I can do a ‘reconnect’ with a reboot/restart of windows. I did put the DOKAN software in my startup folder but the ideal setup would be an auto reconnect. Does anyone know if this is an option with this software?

    Not all human behavior fossilizes. The words I utter and you hear as vibrations in the air are certainly human changes in the material world and may be of great historical significance. Yet they leave no sort of trace in the archaeological records unless they are captured by a dictaphone or written down by a clerk.
