Are there any applications out there like Putty with a Windows UI, like I can explore files, upload and edit without having to type in Unix commands, pure UI?

WinSCP

WinSCP is an open source free SFTP client, SCP client, FTPS client and FTP client for Windows. Its main function is file transfer between a local and a remote computer. Beyond this, WinSCP offers scripting and basic file manager functionality.

    WinSCP is good enough that sometimes I long for a unix version of it

  • @Randolf Richardson I think that the 'Unix' tag was only referring to Unix commands. I believe that he is using Windows, but let's wait for an answer..

    "with a windows UI" will be good enough.

  • @Earlz: sshfs, and the SFTP support in GNOME and KDE.

If you're using a Unix/Linux Operating System (your Question didn't indicate which OS you're using), then this answer applies (I've also provided a separate answer in case you need this for a Windows OS).

By "like putty" I assume you mean a text-mode interface. If that's the case, then this application may work quite well for you (especially if you're already familiar with FAR Manager and/or Norton Commander):

  Midnight Commander (free and open source)

  FAR Manager (free and open-source)
  http://www.farmanager.com/

This is a native Windows application that utilizes text mode. It is available as a native 32-bit or native 64-bit application.

  • You can also get a WinSCP plug-in for the FAR Manager that will let you access a Unix/Linux system via SFTP/SCP very much like you'd access FTP or a local hard drive: winscp.net/eng/docs/far Aug 19, 2011 at 14:08
