The Jargon File

Fish

FIle transferred over SHell protocol.

A spiffy little protocol that gives graphical applications access to a remote computer - typically a server - as though the server were a local folder, without requiring any complicated setup on either the server or client side.

Simply install ssh on the server, and anything that supports FISH (mostly, KDE) on the client side, and that's it.
