Lets you mount remote filesystems over SSH or FTP, and access them through Finder. Far nicer than using the ssh command in Terminal, or a third-party FTP client (which you may well have to pay for).

NB. Finder does already provide FTP access (via “Connect to server…”), but it’s read-only.

NB2: In order to have write access over SSH, you’ll need to do the trick described here ( to map your local username to the username of your SSH account.

NB3: I find it convenient to place a link to in Finder’s toolbar.
