Thread: File "Connect to Server" ssh

  1. #1

    Default File "Connect to Server" ssh

    In opensuse 10 I could go to a new window in Nautilus and click file > connect to server > ssh and enter in the information and it would give me a mount on the server.

    In opensuse 11 I go through the same process but it creates and sftp mount instead of an ssh mount.

    Is the ssh option not available in opensuse 11?

    Sftp is done over the ssh protocol anyway so perhaps it's just a cosmetic issue of what the mount is called?

    I am pretty sure that it is not how it used to be, as I used to be able to directly mount to regions on the server, this in opensuse 11 now gives browsable regions on the server and does not let me copy file from or put files onto the server.

    I don't know if this has anything do do with the move to the new gio or gvfs and it does not support the ssh mounts.

    Try connecting using an address like this:

    fish://usernameassword@server/path/to/files

    If you omit the colon and password part (assword), you'll be prompted for
    the password each time.

    You can also omit the username (if you omit the password) and you'll connect
    using your current username on your current computer.

    fish://server/path/to/files

    This will work from Konqueror, and is VERY handy to put into a
    bookmark/favorite. I do this since I often drop files off into other systems
    and this makes it a single click + password entry.
