Could I explore existing code on an Ubuntu via VS 2019 SSH, same as it can be done with VS Code's Remote Explorer add-on?

On Windows VS Code I am using Remote Explorer add-on to have the git bitbucket cloned code from an Ubuntu dev-machine available via SSH and a bash terminal.

Could this be achieved with VS 2019? I do not need to build as I am doing it directly on the Ubuntu dev machine.

    @Paul Augustin ,

    Since you have added azure-webapps tag, just want to confirm are you leveraging/deployed an Azure WebApp?

    If this is the case, just to highlight on Azure App Service standpoint:

    To make open a direct SSH session with your container, you can use this URL (the WebApp must be running)
    Paste the following URL into your browser and replace <app-name> with your app name:

    With TCP tunneling technology for Azure App Service, it enables you to have SSH/SFTP access and remote debugging for Linux Web Apps.
    Also, you can SSH into an app container using any SSH client of your choice (previously we only had SSH access through a Kudu web client).

    Kindly check this doc for more info.
    Open an SSH session to a Linux container in Azure App Service

    If your requirement is different, please do share more details about our scenario and setup.
    I have added additional tags to receive insights from the targetted audience/SMEs.
