my inference was that he wanted a graphical client.

if you use emacs, there's "tramp", a tool (like ange-ftp or efs) which
allows transparent access to files through ssh/scp (including dired,
for browsing directories).

failing that (let's not talk about how *big* a failure that is...), i
found this list of ssh clients.  some of them are graphical:


doing searches for "scp x11" or "scp graphical linux" on google turned
up some good stuff.  it looks like there's a plugin for kde that
allows the use of "scp://..." URLs.
