Before trying to open the remote files in Quanta run:

sshfs user at ~/remote

where ~/remote is an empty directory.

Then in Quanta open ~/remote

Obviously user at  is your login and remote site and ~/remote can 
be pretty much anything you want it to be .

good Luck

Real users never know what they want, but they always know when your program 
doesn't deliver it.
