KDE, FreeBSD & fish

I've used Konqueror many times before to connect from abroad to my machine
at home using fish://.
Sometimes this works, and sometimes it doesn't. I've had several
reinstallations on my laptop over the last few months for a few various
reasons, and I've noticed that on some installations it 'just works' and on
some it doesn't.
I'm connecting from KDE 3.3 on FreeBSD 5.3 to a FreeBSD 5.2.1 machine. All
I get in my output in the status bar is 'Connecting...' before it
eventually times out.
Yup, I can SSH in normally from this location. Fish just doesn't work. So
is this feature dodgy as far as anyone knows? It's a real pain in the arse
when it doesn't work, because fish is extraordinarily handy for copying
files using a GUI without having to implement something like FTP. So how
irritating when it doesn't work :-)
PS: I've never been so sure as to where to post queries like this --
freebsd-questions or one of the KDE mailing lists, or both. But I guess it
can't hurt to post to either. And I choose here :)
