ssh with a file manager???

Is it possible to browse files on another box with a file manager using ssh?  If not what are the alternatives.

Thanks

You might like to use sshfs, which lets you mount the remote file system as if a local directory tree. Then you can can browse them with your local file manager.

Midnight Commander can do it.

This depends on the file manager and desktop you are using. In KDE's dolphin you can use fish://user@host:/path/to/directory as URL. However, I also find sshfs-connections more reliable and you don't get annoying popups each time you download/upload a file.

I appreciate the inputs.  Thanks.  I thought I will have to use vnc like the good people of FreeBSD.
