The default file manager of Linux Mint 15 (Mate) is Caja. In the about screen of Caja, it says:

Caja lets you organize files and folders, both on your computer and online.

My question is, how could Caja be used to organize files and folders online? Does it mean it can be used as an FTP client?

Yes, IIRC. I believe it can be used for FTP, though I'm not 100% sure.

What I suspect it's talking about, though, is Samba shares. (It may also be able to do sshfs but I'm not sure.)

All the magic happens through GVFS (or whatever the MATE guys called the GNOME 2 equivalent, GVS, when they forked it).


Yes it supports both FTP and VSFTP. See here

    vsftp is the name of a particular program that provides FTP and SFTP (among other similar protocols) -- you probably mean the latter. :-) – Chris Down Dec 17 '13 at 6:14
