"Connect to server" behavior changed in Hardy

Asked by alperyilmaz on 2008-05-15

I recently upgraded from Gutsy to Hardy. There's change in behavior of "Connect to Server" feature under "Places". In Gutsy, I was able to mount a remote folder by SSH and the folder remained mounted even after restart. However, in Hardy, even though I choose "SSH" as Service Type, the remote folder is mounted as "sftp".
The sftp mounted folder is unmounted after a while, so I need to mount it repeatedly.
Please refer to picture for details: http://alperyilmaz.org/download/ssh-sftp.jpg

What was removed from Gutsy during upgrade so that Hardy cannot mount remote folders nicely? How can I gain back the funtionality as in Gutsy? I installed and tried "sshfs" and "fuse-utils" but couldn't succeed. Do I need to try harder on "sshfs" or do I need to do something else?

I'd also like to know the answer to this. Gutsy handled this really well. What is causing this to fail in Hardy?

I have come across similar issues.
I have an old desktop which had Gutsy installed (everything working fine). After a Hardy upgrade all remote SSH folders were removed, and I can't recreate them with the "Connect to Server" feature under "Places". I keep getting a connection timed out error, and SSH is replaced by sftp. Trying the same procedure on my Gutsy laptop, I connect with no issues via SSH.
What's going on?
