Krusader file Manager - Remote Connections
Remote connections are easily made by typing the URL in the Location Toolbar; these are actually KIO Slaves. Please note that the Krusader panel does not support all KIO Slave e.g. http:// will not work in the panel, but will work in the viewer. Some examples:
You can bookmark these URL's, however, please read the Bookman section regarding securely save passwords. For connecting to multiple locations, bookmark these URL's and open them one by one, or open them all together by using Panel profiles. To switch from one to another location, just open a Folder tabs for each.
There are three ways to start a remote connection:
Type the URL in the Location Toolbar
Select -> which will pop-up a dialog that will ask for the remote site details. This dialog is handy if you are not used to type remote URL's in the Location Toolbar. Leaving the password and user name fields empty will log you in as anonymous. NOTE: we are planning to rewrite this dialog window.
You can bookmark a directory on a remote host and return to this directory from the bookmark button on the top corner of your panel just like in a web browser.
After you log on to a remote server you can browse it just like your local hard drive with the following exceptions:
You cannot execute files on remote servers.
Permissions cannot always be calculated on remote servers (depends on server and access method) so you might get a "?" on the permissions columns for some files.
Disk usage information is not available for most remote filesystems.
To change the charset of the remote host use -> .
You can close the current Active Remote Connection by two separate methods:
Krusader is a file manager that supports remote connections via KIO Slaves, but if you are looking for even more advanced remote connections features, e.g. an advanced FTP-client we recommend you to use e.g. Kasablanca or Kftpgrabber.
This section is contributed by Andrew Svet (z-vet), feedback about this chapter is appriciated. Thanks!
This works on a Debian® system, so it will work on Debian® and derivatives (Kubuntu® etc.), though it should work on other Linuxes as well. We assume that you have SSH installed, configured and working on every machine on LAN you want to connect to/from. There are plenty of very good tutorials about SSH on the net, e.g. at linuxhomenetworking.com or just google for it. We use the default SSH port (22) for this chapter. Remember to change it if you use different one. All modifications, editing etc. must be done as root.
