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.
