I love WinSCP for Windows. What are the best equivalent softwares for linux?
I tried to use sshfs to mount the remote file system on my local machine, but it is not as user friendly as simply launching a GUI, plus it seems to require root access on the client machine, which is not very convenient.
Of course command line tools such as scp are possible, but I am looking for a simple GUI.
If you’re using Gnome, you can go to:
Connect to Server in
and choose SSH. If you have a SSH agent running and configured, no password will be asked!
(This is the same as sftp://[email protected]/directory in Nautilus)
In Konqueror, you can simply type: fish://servername.
per Mike R: In Ubuntu Unity 14.0.4 its under Files > Connect to Server in the Menu or Network > Connect to Server in the sidebar
