WinSCP client for Ubuntu [closed]

Are there any GUI clients for Ubuntu which can remotely connect to another Linux box over SCP?

"If you are used to WinSCP,
one option is to install WINE and use WinSCP itself.

(note: my link is just a reference -- you may want to get the stable WINE release,
If the latest stable release of Wine (currently Wine 1.0.1) works for you,
then you may not want to use these beta packages).

I guess you are referring to this kind of discussion in your question.
That thread too refers WINE as one of the options (with some notes on crashes in 2007).

At the end is this Nautilus reference,

Ubuntu's Nautilus file explorer works just fine.
Places->Connect to Server and select SSH.

That is probably what Martin refers in his answer.

Update: for the record, this answer was accepted because it indirectly referred SecPanel.

SecPanel: SSH GUI for Unix.
SecPanel sits on top of SSH software-suites and supports the SSH.com and the OpenSSH-version."

"You can use FileZilla on Ubuntu:

sudo aptitude install filezilla

Just make sure you connect using SFTP."

"You could install Krusader.

Krusader is a very powerful commander style GUI file manager for KDE
and many other desktop managers such as GNOME."

"You can use sshfs.

~$ mkdir tmp

~$ sshfs toto@lecole.fr:Document/Blagues tmp

This will mount the remote Blagues directory to the local tmp directory. Then you can use a regular file browser to go into the remote directory through the local one.

To unmount the directory (make sure that no application is accesing tmp directory or files),

~$ fusermount -u tmp"

"To run WinSCP under Linux (Ubuntu 12.04), follow these steps:

1) sudo apt-get install wine (run this one time only, to get 'wine' in your system, if you haven't it)

2) download ""Portable executable"" from winscp.net/eng/download.php

3) make a folder and put the content of zip file in this folder

4) open a terminal

5) type ""sudo su""

6) type ""wine WinSCP.exe""

Done! WinSCP will run like in Windows environment!

Best regards."
