In Ubuntu running Gnome 2 you were able to select "Connect to Server" from the Places menu and you would get a graphical connection to whatever server you connected to.

Example:

How can you do this from within Xubuntu?

Best Answer

I was able to connect to servers by first running

sudo apt-get install gvfs-fuse gvfs-backends

Then, open up any folder and hit Ctrl+L. In the location dialog box it presented I could then enter:

sftp://user@hostname:port/directory/path

This would give me a browser of the remote system.
