I cannot imagine why anyone would want to use a terminal/ssh to move
files (unless its something like an rsync script). OP appears to be
trying to move files using a browser (maybe I snipped too much).
Konqueror supports sftp://(user@)IP/host (ssh ftp, packaged with ssh)
addresses which makes it really easy to move files to/from other
machines. Using the already suggested key pairs it's just like working
with files on the local system.

I thought remote root logins were disabled by default, it's a standard
security precaution (since I cannot $ su w/ sftp, I enable/limit root
logins to key pairs on my remote server).

...I see that sshfs and using it in Konqueror via fish:// have been
mentioned. I've never used them and see no point when Konqueror and
sftp are already available.
