Are you using Gnome or KDE ??

KDE has a neat little application built in to Konqueror, calles "fish"
If I want  to send some data/files to another computer on my home 
network ,  in the  Konqueror "Location" box i type in

fish://bob@ , and  ssh (on my computer) will display a 
Konqueror window of the computer.
then I can drag-drop files , folders to and from both computers.

Be sure sshd is enabled in both computers, and you have a folder&file  
~/.ssh/known_hosts on both computers.
