    I am a network engineer. I often write perl scripts to perform various tasks on the network equipment. Typically the network equipment is controlled from a server to which I have only FTP,SSH access. I'm looking for the possibility of developing on remote servers. i.e. I want to be able to run and debug scripts on a remote machine with the same features like on localhost, avoiding copying the files manually back and forth
      From this description, I'm going to second the VIM and SSH approach.

      I also am a network engineer/architect with many scripts written to work with cisco equipment. I'm a command line guy all the way, GUI's usually get in my way more than help me out.


      I'll also recommend vim and ssh. Working on code on remote servers, it's just easier. Not only don't you have to copy files, but keeping the configuration compatible on the local box is unnecessary.

      Vim can be quite powerful if you use its features.

      I'll throw another one on for the vim/ssh approach. I do this kind of thing often because vim really is the simplest way. All it takes it two plugins to make the process completely painless. The netrw plugin allows you to use an scp url to open a remote file and behaves exactly how you'd expect.

      I also use the project plugin. For me it's basically a great bookmark plugin for my common files, so I have a lot of lines like scp:// in there.
