Remote Editing using IntelliJ

Is it possible to remotely edit files on other servers either using FTP or preferably SSH?

telnet is not an option as that is disabled on most of our servers.

I could not find any information on this anywhare.

thanks

In earlier versions of intellij I was told not to store source files on a remote machine, in my case a mapped network drive.

I just want to be able to quickly edit property files on a remote box and restart the server rahter than get a local copy and synch with the remote box.


source is on my own box

why don't you use ssh and then a text based editor like vi, emacs, or pico? There are windows versions of all these editors.

I used XEmacs for java development. I am about to switch to IntelliJ because I love its rich feature set.

I am pretty fluent in ssh'ing to a box and using vi or emacs. But I was trying to do all of that inside IntelliJ so that I minimize switching between applictaions.

e.g. I love the SQL plugin which spares me the trouble of using another third party tool to connect to application back end database.


An all inclusive tool is that much more powerfull.
