By using emacs as a GUI ssh client, you can open remote files.
Just try following instructions:
- Type <Ctrl>-f, focus will be switched to the mini buffer.
- Type file path with prefix protocol, account, and host name, like /ssh:firstname.lastname@example.org:8080:/home/beowulf/Document/hello.txt, note the beginning slash and colon between host and file path.
- Type <Tab> or <Enter>, emacs will prompt you to type password.
