Nautilus cannot display Remote SFTP Location.


When i try to connect to a remote-sftp server with nautilus I get the following message:

Nautilus cannot display "sftp://server".
Please select another viewer and try again.

When i start from it from the terminal it gives me the following error message:

** (nautilus:12681): WARNING **: in nautilus-applicablle-views.c, got unhandled GnomeVFSResult 6 (I/O error). If this is a legitimate get_file_info result, please tell so he can write a decent user-level error message for it.

I can access the sftp server from the prompt bij the command sftp stef@server. Then it works. When i go to nautilus and go to sftp://stef@localhost/ everything works fine for me.

Why can't I connect to a remote machine in nautilus via SFTP?

I run debian unstable.
