In dbVis I can run scripts using remote database servers, but I can't open them from or save them to remote filesystems (or can I?). My workstation is Windows but my development environment is Linux. I used to run the Linux version of dbVis using an X Window server for Windows, which was great. But I'm beginning to use development tools, like Visual Studio Code and dbVis, directly on Windows. VS Code can connect via SSH so no X server is required. For dbVis, I could mount Linux on Windows (samba, SSHFS, etc), but having builtin support for remote filesystems (via SSH, SFTP, etc) would be great.
Currently mounting file systems is required for DbVisualizer as you have already discovered.
I will open a new ticket for supporting sftp and other file system protocols.
