Editing files from FTP

Hi,now i am searching how in KDE edit files from FTP.

gftp + kate (gftp editor) with this combination i can edit files, but i can save them only then kate is closed, but i want to save files in FTP server after CTRL+S and not by closed text editor application.

Can somebody say with what applications i can implement this idea.

I am using Slackware-12.2, KDE.

I believe there is a cool something-or-other for FUSE (filesystem in user space) that allows you to have FTP folders as though they were any other directory. I know Gnome has this feature built-in.

I'm just starting to use KDE 4, but, if I understand your question, the solution is quite easy. KED allows for seamless ftp file editing via the network interface. Simply set-up your ftp information by adding network folders(from the application launcher: computer -> network -> add network folder). You can then select files over ftp from whatever program you like by just navigating to open -> network -> your_files, do your work and save, voila!
