I want to mount pi share on another pi. I tried this:

sudo nano /etc/fstab && sudo mount -a

And in fstab I added:

pi@files.home:/mnt/4TB/ /mnt/files fuse.sshfs defaults,allow_other,_netdev 0 0

And I get the error:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on pi@files.home:/mnt/4TB/,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error

       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so.

I guess I'm using the wrong arguments, But I don't know what are the correct arguments. What are the correct arguments? Where do I look?


I used raspbian lite, and sshfsisn't installed by default.

So I installed it with sudo apt-get install sshfs

Then I added it to the /etc/fstab

pi@ /mnt/files  fuse.sshfs  identityfile=/home/pi/.ssh/id_rsa,allow_other,defaults,default_permissions,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0

So now the files are available on the remote Raspberry Pi via sshfs (SSH File System).
