mount and umount commands hang

Spread the love

I’m using a VPN to connect to my university network, then I mount a folder on my local machine using sudo sshfs -o allow_other [email protected]:/home/username /home/username. This works well.

Later, I disconnect from the VPN, and later on I connect back and want to use the mounted folder, but it appears to “hang”. This means that using umount /home/username hangs, as well as trying to run the mount command again.

Any ideas or command to “restart” the mount?
