Having your server mounted as a local hard drive makes editing files easy. This is great for transferring files from device to device, including smart TVs and gaming consoles too.

Open a terminal window

1. Install curlftpfs

sudo apt install curlftpfs

2. Create the directory you would like to link to the FTP server. I’m choosing /media/ftp

sudo mkdir /media/ftp

3. Link the FTP server to the folder you just created. You are going to type the command curlftpfs with your user name password and server address.

curlftpfs YOURNAMEHERE:YOURPASSWORDHERE@YOURSERVERNAMEHERE /media/ftp

That’s all folks!
