I know i can mount over ssh/sftp/sshfs using FUSE, but can the same work with FTP/FTPS?
the aim is to mount a FTPS server to e.g. /databackup
I cant use SSH/SFTP/SSHFS as the host of the other server does not support those methods
I have always liked using lftp with the mirror option. It sounds like it might work pretty good for you based on the /databackup example. There is a brief example given here under the section called Backup To Remote Server, rsync Without Passwords. (Regardless of the heading it does talk about lftp usage)
