Mount remote ftp to your server

If you use debian or ubuntu,you should install the package first.

apt-get install curlftpfs

After the installation,create a folder where will you mount to.for example /mnt/rftp

sudo mkdir /mnt/rftp

curlftp’s format and its parameters are simple.for example,we have an ftp account like olriss and password: 123x4P at 192.168.1.199

in local server,mount remote ftp with using this command

curlftpfs olriss:123x4P@192.168.1.199 /mnt/rftp/

curlftps is similar to nfs tools so you can review the mounted ftp area in your mounted drive list.so check it with “mount -a” command.

after your work is finished,you can unmount it with similar way as nfs unmounting.You won’t need all parameters to unmount,You just unmount the folder like below,

umount /mnt/rftp
