First Steps with the Remote System Explorer
Even without an actual connection to a remote system, you can start experimenting with the Remote System Explorer UI on the local host, which is shown by default under the Local node:
- Browse the Filesystem, choose contextmenu > show in Table, and observe the Properties view.
- Create a new Filter to show specific resources in the file system only.
- Launch an RSE
Shell (Shells node > Launch)
- In the Shell, perform commands such as ls, dir, ps, gcc, make and see the output interpreted
- Use Ctrl+Space Content Assist on the shell command entry field
For operations on an actual remote system, you can either
- use the "SSH Only" system type (New > Other > Remote System Explorer > Connection), or
- start a dstore server daemon on the remote system and use any of the other connection types.
RSE is a framework that supports plugging in many different communication
protocols. By default, the dstore, FTP and ssh protocol plug-ins are
provided, with dstore being the richest in features.
DStore requires a server to run on the remote system. There are several methods to get a server launched for a particular user, the most easy one to set up is the daemon method.
