I have installed Midnight Commander via Ports, but I am unable to connect to a remote computer to copy files as:

  cd #sh:user@server.net

I keep getting:

  "Cannot CHDIR to #sh:user@server.net".

How can I get my MC to be able to do that?

Not sure if it would solve your problem but I think that brew became a better alternative than macports. –  sorin Nov 18 '12 at 10:51
