General Development The ability to run both console and graphical programs securely on a remote system using SSH brings you a great deal of freedom. When the communications link to that remote system has high latency, however, running interactive programs such as a text editor on the remote machine can become a real test of your patience. The bcvi project lets you edit files on a remote system using gvim (or another editor) on your local desktop machine to avoid the latency.

No need for Konqueror. Pretty much every KDE app can do this in the File dialog.

1. Open KDE editor of choise.

2. Type "sftp://user@host/path/to/dir/" into the top textbox (location) and hit enter.

3. Enter password when prompted.

Voila! Instant access to all files on the remote system, same as if they were local. Open/Edit as needed.

You can do this with any KIO Slaves (dav, svn, http, sftp, etc).
