what do you expect a "graphic" client to do? ssh is a command line system...

Sorry for confusing. I mean a graphic client like SSH File Transfer Client in Windows.

Cheers!

I think you mean scp.

If you use kde you can use fish in konqueror:
fish://user@host/path/to/dir

thank you for reply.

I am using Gnome, any software I can use to have a graphic file transfer client. I am really tired of type such a long command in terminal using "scp".

Cheers!

scp is a doddle... i'd guess you need to learn bash better, it's much quicker than a gui. but i *think* gftp supports scp and sftp as well as ftp.

The reason I want to use GUI is that my personal folder's location in Campus server is more than 30 characters long, everytime I want to transfer a single file I have to type such a long path.

I tried gftp to connect to my Campus server, but it doesn't work.

Cheers!

Write a script around it or put something like
Code:
export CAMPUS="mylogin@1.2.3.4:/boy/what/a/long/location/this/is"
in your .profile. With that, all you need to do to scp is
Code:
# scp localfile ${CAMPUS}
If your personal folder is also your homedirectory, you can use mylogin@1.2.3.4:~/ by the way.

If you're running a very recent system...GNOME 2.6 has a "Connect to Server..." option in the File menu that accepts sftp://, and you can bookmark URIs in the File Browser.

I think having ReefShark's suggestion is best option. After all ssh is something that can be best utilised in command line mode.

You know that pressing tab will complete filenames right?

does ~ not work for your personal folder? or is your personal folder not your home directory?...
