graphical ssh/scp client of linux


Hi there.

I'm looking for a GUI based ssh/scp client that goes for linux , because i've become tired of doing all the typing everytime I want to handle files on a remote machine.
a click click proggie is indeed so much nicer.

ain't that right?

Does your shell do file name completion? Becoming familiar with the various shortcuts in your shell eliminates a lot of typing on your part. Given that, I prefer the shell to a graphical user interface (and my desktop is Mac OS X).

Matter of opinion and preference, of course. I'm sure others will come along with suggestions for a particular application with a GUI.

If you use konqueror, you can use the fish:/ protocol. You can also split the screen into two or more panes, so you can for example drag files from the left pane to the right, with one pane being on a remote machine. You can even have both panes being remote ssh connections on two different remote hosts.

Another option is to use fuse to mount a remote directory in your home directory and then use your favorite file browser.
Code:
sudo /sbin/modprobe fuse
mkdir ~/remote
sshfs username@<remoteserver>:Documents ~/remote
You need to install sshfs to do this.
After the colon after the server name, is a directory starting in the users home directory. If you want to mount a system directory, such as /etc, then start the location with a slash.

As far as I can tell , Nope it doesn't it thought that was only applied in irssi but that's a different story.
the only shortcuts i know about in bash are the up and down arrows that get you the history of previous commands ..etc
despite that i don't prefer this option , I'd like to know about how to enable this feature in bash

Have you tried just typing a tab when you have part of a name entered?

For example, if `ls` gives you:

Desktop Movies Send Registration
Documents Music Sites
Library Pictures
Magazines Public

(yup, it's a Mac, but it's bash in the terminal window.)

Then if you type `ls -l Se` followed by a tab, you get `ls -l Send\ Registraton`.

There's lots more you can do. To find out more, check out `man bash`, google bash guide or tutorial or something like that, or get a book on bash. Of course you could do the same with ksh, which is what I use. But lots of people like bash.
