Accessing files on another BOSS Linux system on a network via GUI (sftp)

Windows user are familiar with clicking Start then Run followed by an IP address to access shared folders on a computer on the network. For those looking for something similar on BOSS Linux(or any other Linux distribution) sftp is the solution. The following works on GNOME.

Press ALT+F2. This brings up the Run Application dialog. In here type
nautilus sftp://username@IPaddress
Where username is the user name you are going to use for logging into the remote system and IPaddress is the remote system’s IP Address.

For example: Typing nautilus sftp://boss@10.0.1.11 would allow me to login to a computer on my LAN with the IP Address 10.0.1.11 as user : boss

This will bring up another dialog which will prompt you for the user name’s password.Once you are done typing in the password Nautilus will bring up the files on the remote system.

Note if you simply type nautilus sftp://IPAddress into the Run Application dialog. GNOME assumes that you are trying to login to the remote machine with same username as the one you currently logged in using.
