GUI SSH in Ubuntu 13.10

Hi all,

I just got a new laptop running Ubuntu 13.10 (from System76, loving it so far). I used to be able to connect to a remote server using SSH (or FTP) through a GUI window on my old Ubuntu 10.x system but I don't see how to do that now. When I am in a folder and go to Files, Connect to Server, it won't accept an IP address. I'd really like to create bookmarks to a few commonly used remote systems that I log into. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

if my understanding is correct, you may be trying VNC connections that time for remote GUI connections.
