Everybody knows the Gnome program (I can remember the package name right now, or if it's Nautilus itself) that gives us the menu "connect to server" that we can login in a remove ftp, ssh, windows, and much more and mount it very easily. Looks pretty much like expandrive for macos.
What I need is a tool like that. But for KDE. Anyone knows?

You want KioFuse.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Tom Wijsman Oct 31 '11 at 21:37

Use either Konqueror or Dolpin. For Konqueror, just type the URL in the address bar, e.g., etc. For Dolpin, select File->Create New->Create New URL and do the same. Hope that is what you want.

Nope. Those methods only access ftp servers. The connect to server for gnome I can access ssh, sftp, windows share, and a lot of more must-have stuffs for me. – bluefoot May 9 '10 at 13:17
@anothertrad: ah, no, that is not the case. Use the correct protocol type in the UBL, e.g. smb:// for Windows shares, sftp:// for sftp, etc. Try it! The protocol types are not hard to find. Konqueror might be more straight forward if Dolphin is confusing you. – user36340 May 10 '10 at 17:54
ok but I need it mounted in a folder so I can do stuff trough the console and other apps. – bluefoot May 13 '10 at 22:12
