Qemu shared folder

Is there a way to run a qemu-kvm VM with a shared folder via terminal?

Re: Qemu shared folder

I've done it with sshfs, either mounting a directory from the host on the VM or the other way, mounting a directory in the VM on the host.  The former can be done without any network options in the qemu command. You do need to have sshfs installed.

sshfs user@host-ip:/home/user/some-subdirectory  some-mountpoint-in-the-VM

fusermount -u some-mountpoint-in-the-VM   # to un-mount the share

I've done it with nfs, too. That's a little more involved. You can even set it up with autofs so the share mounts automatically when you access the mountpoint.

I've used this. It works. I like the fact that a normal, non-root user can write to the shared directory from the guest system. I seem to recall that on VirtualBox I always had to be root in order to do that.
