didn't look at the current code and don't know if the freedom box does
run sshd at all - but anyway:

you can announce ssh/sftp via avahi and it will show up in f.e. nautlius
network folder like this: (assuming there is a user fbx with its home in
/home/fbx and the home is the place you would like to announce)

    # announce sftp via avahi (for simple access via gnome/nautilus)
    # see also:
