I use LXDE, whose file manager - pcmanfm - supports SFTP, but does not keep an open session, so when I want to drill down to a directory I have to wait repeatedly for connection establishment.
I would like to have something like WinSCP on Windows - an application which maintains an open SSH/SFTP session. Obviously, the
sftp utility can do this when I'm on the command-line - but I want to be able to do this in a GUI environment.
- Desirable feature: TCP keepalives and/or no-effect commands for the connection to stay up.
- Desirable feature: File and directory drag-and-drop support.
- desktop-environment-specific solutions are appreciated and perhaps even preferred because of their integration with the rest of the UI; specifically, KDE- and LXDE-specific apps/utilities/UI components.
