Bounty: 50

I used to be able to use nautilus and go to the location bar and “ssh://blah@blahserver.com” into a remote server and do things like drag and drop files. However, that remote server added two-factor authentication with duo (e.g. if I ssh in a terminal, after giving my correct password I now have to do a duo 2FA.

Duo two-factor login for nouyang

Enter a passcode or select one of the following options:

 1. Duo Push to XXX-XXX-1234
 2. Phone call to XXX-XXX-1234

If I try to use ssh in nautilus, it just asks me for my password three times and then fails (or spins for a while and says "oops! unhandled error message: timed out when logging in").

I would really like a graphical interface, since the alternative is scp but now each time I use scp I also have to go through this process. Is there any way to do so?
