I am using Ubuntu 10.04. I normally use Places => connect to server to copy files from another linux machine via ssh.
I have been given a login to a remote machine which i connect via the command line using this command
ssh -X -L 3316:localhost:3316 username@ipaddress
Apparently this login automatically connects to me to another machine (on the same network i think) via ssh
I dont know how to access this machine using 'connect to server' or scp
I tried using 'connect to server' via ssh with a port of 3316 but it fails with message
'cannot display location sftp://username@ipaddress:3316/
timed out when logging in'
I don't know how the -X and -L options from the above can be specified with the ubuntu connect to server feature or even scp
