What is the most stable way of mounting an FTP filesystem? curlftpfs doesn't work very reliably for me :/ is there a better way?

Edit: I'm on ubuntu!

Edit 2: I tried version 0.9.2. I did a mount, and then a cp ../index.html . and I get cp: closing './index.html': Input/output error. (This is the third ftp-server I'm having trouble with, and I've reinstalled the system in between.)

If it's of any help, I do curlftpfs -o user=xxx:yyy ftp.example.com ftpdir

What OS are you using? What version of curlftpfs are you using? –  Wesley May 15 '10 at 6:16

Which version of curlftpfs are you using? I hope it's not the unstable 0.9.2-1. Try a slightly older version. I don't know what OS you're using, but if it's OS X you could look at WebDrive or ExpanDrive.

Ok, I'll try an earlier version. Thanks for the tip. –  aioobe May 15 '10 at 6:34
    
@aioobe Try 0.9.2, not the 0.9.2-1 version –  Wesley May 15 '10 at 6:36

@aioobe Sorry, I'm out of ideas. =( –  Wesley May 16 '10 at 2:15
sudo curlftpfs -o umask=0777,uid=1000,gid=1000,allow_other \
ftp://username:password@your.ftpserver.here /media/ftpmountedhere

Try that command
