Im trying to Mount FTPS to a directory but it doesn't seem to work...

I can do this:

lftp -p 990 user:pass@

It will connect fine.

But if I do this:

curlftpfs /mnt/test -o user=user:pass

I get this error:

* Couldn't find host in the .netrc file; using defaults
* About to connect() to port 990 (#0)
*   Trying * connected
* Connected to ( port 990 (#0)
