Create Zoiper5 socket file outside of home directory or solution to network mounted sshfs /home directory.

0 votes

Or user's home directory is mounted with sshfs.  When we try to run Zoiper it attempts to bind to the socket file /home/username/.Zoiper5/Zoiper5_socket.  Due to it being mounted over ssh it creates the following error:  "single instance bind: : Operation not permitted".  Any ideas on a solution to this issue.

Moving the socket file or any other file out of the default location is not supported, this would require lots of changes and may cause permission issues, so we have decided it is better to keep the things this way.


Maybe you can do a dirty trick with ln -s?



Tried this and it doesn't work.  There's a way to bind over sshfs but I can't quite get it to work.


Found this : sshfs user@server: ~/ -o nonempty -F /dev/null -o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -o IdentitiesOnly=yes -o IdentityFile=/dev/null -o PubkeyAuthentication=no

Maybe it helps you.
