6.11.a. To Access a Remote Server

You can use the file manager to access a remote server, be it an FTP site, a Windows share, a WebDav server or an SSH server.

To access a remote server, choose File->Connect to Server. You may also access this dialog from the menubar by choosing Places->Connect to Server.

In the Connect to Server dialog, you may click on the Browse network button to close this dialog and view services available on your network in a nautilus window.

To connect to a remote server, start by choosing the service type, then enter the server address.

If required by your server, you may provide the following optional information :

Dialog Element

Description

Port

Port to connect to on the server. This should only be used if it is necessary to change the default port, you would normally leave this blank.

Folder

Folder to open upon connecting to server.

User Name

The user name of the account used to connect to the server. This should be supplied with the connexion information if needed. The user name information is not appropriate for a public FTP connexion.

Name to use for connection

The designation of the connexion as it will appear in the file manager.

Share

Name of desired windows share. This is only applicable to Windows shares.

Domain name

Windows domain. This is only applicable to Windows shares.

If the server information is provided in the form of a URI, or you require a specialized connection, choose Custom Location as the service type.

Once you have filled in the information, click on the Connect button. When the connection succeeds, the contents of the site are displayed and you may drag and drop files to and from the remote server. (Next: To Access Network Places)
