I was looking for a way to access my Ironport appliance folders remotely so I can execute scripts applied to them.
By installing the curlftpfs package and configuring a fstab entry I have been able to access via a local mount the contents my Ironport offers via FTP
Install the curlftpfs package
This example is for Debian, but the package is also available for other distributions (Centos, RedHat…)
# apt-get install curlftpfs
Add the fstab entry
This is the line I have added:
# cat /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/sda1 / ext3 errors=remount-ro 0 1 /dev/sda5 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/hda /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0 /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0 curlftpfs#ftp://admin:mypass@myserver /FTPmountpath fuse defaults 0 0
