Is there any way of remote handling your unix files like a local folder on a Windows Machine?


I’m learning about Linux System Administration.
I have a Ubuntu 16.04 Server LTS, there’s no GUI (I don’t need one anyway) and I’m handling everything from a terminal and because I have to do “file hunting” and handling, for me terminal is not speedy enough.

For example let’s say I want to configure my Bind9 DNS settings, the main configurations are:


so I’ll have to do:

nano /etc/bind/named.conf
nano /etc/bind/named.conf.options
nano /etc/bind/named.conf.local

as long as I am logged in as root, if not logged in as root I’ll have to use sudo as well.

and I’ve been thinking wouldn’t it be nice, if there was any way to have remote access to all of my files in server?

For example:
I would like to use my Windows Machine and Visual Studio Code and treating those Linux files like they are a folder on my C:\

Is it possible?

@web-coders the best way to edit your files on a remote server is to connect via SSH and open an command line editor such as vim or nano. That is what most do.
Why aren’t you using Ubuntu 19.04?
