Does anyone know of a program/script that runs on Linux that can give us a nice GUI for browsing and managing shared system folders similar in the way that windows explorer would work?

So would allow, upload, download, file modification etc. It's a way to still have access to all our files stored on the system from any location with internet access.

Thanks in advance

Alternatively you could try FileThingie ( or PHP File Manager ( FileThingie's UI is much nicer than PHP File Manager's, but personally I think PHP File Navigator's UI is even better. Matter of opinion really, though.
