If you just want to access files on another *nix box, sftp is great. If you are dpjungk on both machines, sftp://192.168.0.2/ is all you need. If the usernames are different, use sftp://dpjungk@.../. A path (e.g. sftp://dpjungk@.../home/dpjungk/Share/) is optional... While no configuration is needed and I'm pretty sure openssh-client is installed by default, openssh-server (e.g. @192.168.0.2) may not be. Setting up ssh key-pairs isn't hard and makes logins (ssh, sftp, etc.) transparent/automatic (no need to save login info in the browser). I believe ssh defaults will only allow root logins (e.g. sftp://root@...) via key-pairs. Key-pairs are also needed for setting up automated rsync backups.
