If you want this GUI type stuff, you need to install KDE.

| ssh work for this?

ssh itself is mainly used to literally log into a remote machine and get
a shell.

However it comes with this other program scp, which allows the encrypted
file transfer action between machines.

So what you can do is

ssh username hostname

to get a remote shell, where you can use cd, ls -l, and whatever to poke
around on the remote server to see what is where, and then when you
identify the file you need to copy, run scp as I described before in a
second terminal window.
