I am using a fuse/sshfs mount which worked fine so far. Now I had to reinstall the server system and suddenly getting the classic read: Connection reset by peer error. I am using public key authentication and copied my key to the newly installed system. Normal ssh login works fine. I changed the log to debug but sadly this doesn't give me any useful information:

sshd[2077]: debug1: Forked child 2198.

Does anyone have an idea what I am missing here?

UPDATE

I tried a manual sshfs mount and I also get read: Connection reset by peer. I then added the debuging options and also got Permission denied (publickey).. This is strange since the public key is in place and works fine otherwise. I also use my user for the ssh connection and manually specify the private key file. Could this be an issue with the root account not beeing able to access the correct public key on the server somewhere? I'm executing

sudo sshfs myuser@myserver:/mnt/foo /mnt/foo -o IdentityFile=/home/myuser/.ssh/id_rsa

and the relevant log part is

debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey
debug1: Next authentication method: publickey
debug1: Offering RSA public key: /home/myuser/.ssh/id_rsa
debug1: Authentications that can continue: publickey
debug1: No more authentication methods to try.
Permission denied (publickey).
read: Connection reset by peer

The output looks exactly like one from a ssh session which refuses to connect due to server key fingerprint mismatch (or an unknown key). Does sftp to the server work correctly? –  peterph Oct 12 '13 at 8:19
    
I tried sftp with both Nautilus (Connect to Server... option) and Filezilla. It works fine. Although Filezilla asked my about an unknown host key. –  André Stannek Oct 12 '13 at 11:09
    
Try sftp directly - that is what SSHFS uses. –  peterph Oct 12 '13 at 15:23
    
@peterph works perfectly –  André Stannek Oct 12 '13 at 16:07
    
Hmm... in that case you might want tu run sshd -ddd, meybe there'll be something in the next debugging level, that might help. –  peterph Oct 12 '13 at 16:31

After a lot more of trying it turns out my client user wasn't in the fuse group. After I added it with sudo usermod -a -G fuse myuser the mount works fine again. Don't ask me how it could have worked before reinstalling the server. Thank for all your help!
