I am connecting to a remote server over SSH but am running into a permissions issue.
My remote account is
thelq and primarily part of the group
thelq. I'm also part of the generic group
users. Another remote account called
game is primarily part of the group
users. On the remote server I can freely view and edit all of
game's files. However on the local server I'm apparently not part of the
users group. Strangely explicitly specifying the
users group for the gid option still doesn't allow me access to the
Example of what I tried in command line:
[thelq@quackwall ~]$ sshfs -o idmap=user -o uid=1000 -o gid=1000 -o allow_other -o default_permissions quackgame:/home game-home thelq@quackgame's password: [thelq@quackwall ~]$ echo something >> game-home/game/INIT-SETUP bash: game-game/game/INIT-SETUP: Permission denied
I'm confused on what else to do as Linux permissions are not my strong point. I was thinking that longing in as me on the remote machine would allow me access to everything the groups says I can but apparently not.
As per @penguin359's request
