I'm not aware of a way to do it through Nautilus without mounting the
remote device first, but I might be wrong.  I'd look up NFS if I were you
(unfortunately I don't have any info right now; I use almost entirely
Samba at home, even for Linux <-> Linux communication since it's just
easier).

An unnecessarily complicated route might be to go with Fuse
(http://fuse.sourceforge.net) and the SSHFS tool.  This would allow you to
mount the remote device to a local mountpoint over SSH.  I just started
playing with it myself over the weekend.
