How to: Connect to a Remote File System with Nautilus using SSH

How to: Connect to a Remote File System with Nautilus using SSH

Nautilus supports connecting to a remote file system using an SSH connection. Before there used to be clear instructions but now it all has gone away with a more simple interface that has left some users confused. But fear not, all you have to do now is type the following:

protocol://hostname:port

Using ssh://MyRemoteServer:22 you can connect via SSH. This is very helpful when you want to visualize remote file systems and navigate through them with the easy of what a graphical interface like Nautilus can offer. Unfortunately I don’t know how to remotely “sudo” nautilus which can be a problem for folders/files were you need root access. If you know how to overcome this issue please let me know so I can update this post and share it with everyone (I could use that too).
