Allows you to access another computer's files using the Secure SHell (SSH) protocol. The remote computer needs to be running the SSH daemon, but the remainder of the protocol uses standard commandline tools as discussed below.
You can use the fish KIO worker like this:
You need to use double forward slashes.
You can omit the
username (and the trailing
@ symbol) if you have the same username on both computers.
You can add a password in the format:
but it is not necessary as you will be prompted for one if it is not
If you are running the SSH daemon on a non-standard
port, you can specify that port using the normal URL syntax as shown
Fish should work with any roughly POSIX compatible
UNIX® based remote computer. It uses the shell commands
and wc. Fish starts
/bin/sh as its shell and expects it to be a
Bourne shell (or compatible, like bash).
If the sed and
file commands are available, as well as a
/etc/apache/magic file with MIME type
signatures, these will be used to guess MIME types.
If Perl is available on the remote machine, it will be used instead. Then only env and /bin/sh are needed. Using Perl has the additional benefit of being faster.
Fish may even work on Windows® machines, if tools like
Cygwin are installed. All the above
utilities must be in the system
PATH, and the initial
shell must be able to process the command echo
