    Re: SFTP over SSH

    Practically, you can use the text-based SFTP client in the shell by opening a terminal and entering sftp plus the address of the server you are connecting to.

    Code:
    sftp -l hhaydoura xx.yy.zz.aa
    Or you can use your file manager, either Dolphin or Nautilus. In either you can press ctrl-L or in Nautilus choose the menu File->Connect to Server->SSH. That will give you a graphical interface to work with.
