Linux – WinSCP equivalent for Linux?


I love WinSCP for Windows. What is the best equivalent software for Linux?

I tried to use sshfs to mount the remote file system on my local machine, but it is not as user friendly as simply launching a GUI, plus it seems to require root access on the client machine, which is not very convenient.

Of course command-line tools such as scp are possible, but I am looking for a simple GUI.

If you're using GNOME, you can go to: PlacesConnect to Server in Nautilus and choose SSH. If you have an SSH agent running and configured, no password will be asked! (This is the same as sftp://root@servername/directory in Nautilus)

In Konqueror, you can simply type: fish://servername.

Per Mike R: In Ubuntu 14.04 (with Unity) it’s under FilesConnect to Server in the menu or NetworkConnect to Server in the sidebar.
