Quote:
kindle: sshfs -o sftp_server=/mnt/us/sftp-server root@192.168.15.244:/ kindle/
it displays "-sh kindle:: nọt found".
What shoud I do? Thanks.

Dokan sshfs for windows: http://dokan-dev.net/en/download/

This version may be easier to install: http://code.google.com/p/win-sshfs/

You might need to install sftpd on your kindle too...

WARNING: Beware that deleing a symlink from windows using SSHFS will delete the file or folder that the symlink points to! Be very careful with sshfs. It might be a bit safer to use WinSCP instead.

Clue me in, what does that command have to do with the thread topic?

That error message sure looks like you typed the: "kindle: " characters that you have quoted above.
Is the "kindle: " your input or the command prompt being displayed in Putty?

Mounting a drive with sshfs assigns it a windows drive letter. In linux, it adds it to a mount point, so you can access it directly in the local filesystem while also using SSH. Although you can mount just /mnt/us, I prefer to mount the entire root drive.

How does mounting /mnt/us over sshfs in windows NOT have something to do with the "How to mount /mnt/us on Windows?" thread title?

You responded before I completed the edit of my post. I know what the "sshfs" command does.
I am curious about what the "kindle: " command was intended to do, which is what the error message reported as "not found".

You should not send your unfinished posts back in time so that others can reply to them before they were sent, then.

The kindle: "command" is not supposed to to anything. It's a classic case of a noob copy/pasting from the Wiki without understanding what he is doing.

Yes, that link shows where you can download the sftpd (sftp server) that I mentioned in my first post. I tried to answer the question asked by the OP by adapting to the windows environment in which he wanted to use it. In windows, just use Dokan or its easier to use packages (the second link I provided).

Thanks for help, unfortunately both the above methods didn't work (or just me).

Then i googled out the information that SFTP don't work on fw 5.1.0 in this thread

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=177936

Sigh, i managed to get this far.

If you read the rest of that thread, you will see that it works when you symlink it. Go back and read a few posts down from your link.

Okay, the last (i hope so) question is:

How do I "symlink it" if the kindle drive don't appear on my computer. I mean symlinking is just a shortcut right?

You need to do it from SSH, and you can only create a symlink on a drive that supports it (such as the main partition), but you can symlink TO files on the USB drive. A windows shortcut is completely different and will not work for this purpose.

Here is the command you have to perform on the kindle to get sftp to work:

Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8

I have my hands a bit full at the moment to check into specifics, so I gave a "general principles" answer. Thank you for supplying specific relevant details.
