Strictly speaking, fish isn't sftp, but close enough, and possibly 
necessary for this application where there probably isn't an sftp server :-)
 I would expect Krusader can also use "sftp://" URLs.

Ah, the hazards of old age.  All the Good Old Days seem to run together.  
In fact, I stopped using serial cables _when_ I got a cross-over cable, 
which I used for a few years.

If the computer at the far end of the connection is using zero-config 
(implemented by avahi on Ubuntu) then it should be pingable.
