Re: Only root can access a fusefs mount in a jail?

Found the solution — it wasn't a jail-specific issue. Fusefs mounts are
restricted to the user who mounted them, unless the 'allow_other' flag is
set on the mount. So, for another user to access root's fusefs mount, it
can be mounted as follows:

# sshfs -o uid=1001,gid=1001,allow_other user_at_server.tld: /mnt
