Volumes (macOS & Linux)

Mount Type

reverse-sshfs

Users can enable the "reverse-sshfs" mount type from the Volumes tab. This exposes the filesystem by running an SFTP server on the host. The host instance will then intitiate an SSH connection into the guest allowing it to connect to the SFTP server. This is the default mount type used in the application.

9p

warning

This is an experimental setting.

Users can enable the "9p" mount type from the Volumes tab. This will expose the filesystem by using QEMU's virtio-9p-pci devices.

  • Cache Mode: Specifies a caching policy that has a default setting as mmap. The caching options are [none, loose, fscache, mmap].

  • Memory Size In KiB: Users can specify the number of bytes to use for the "9p" packet size. The minimum value is 4 KiB and the default size is 128 KiB.

  • Protocol Version: Users can select the "9p" protocol version. The options include [9p2000, 9p2000.u, 9p2000.L] and the default protocol setting is 9p200.L.

  • Security Model: Users can select a supported security model with options being [passthrough, mapped-xattr, mapped-file, none]. The default security setting value is none.
