    Thunar it is possible to browse remote locations (such as FTP servers or Samba shares) directly in Thunar. To enable this functionality ensure that gvfs, gvfs-smb and sshfs packages are installed. A ‘Network’ entry is visible in Thunar’s side bar and remote locations can be opened by using the following URI schemes in the location dialog (opened with Ctrl+l): smb://, ftp://, ssh://, sftp://, davs:// & followed by the server hostname or IP address.

    Required basic packages:
    gvfs gvfs-backends gvfs-bin gvfs-common gvfs-daemons gvfs-fuse gvfs-libs python-samba samba samba-common samba-common-bin samba-dsdb-modules samba-libs samba-vfs-modules libsmbclient smbclient smbnetfs
