Hurray, another tcsh user!
I haven't actually set up fancy autocomplete in tcsh, though I
remember it from when it used to be on by default back when I used
SuSE, but take a look at /etc/complete.tcsh.
I don't think there's anything there that handles remote filenames
over ssh, but perhaps it's hookinable via the same mechanism the
bash trick uses.
It still sounds like a lot more work to set up than ncftp, though,
which does remote autocompletion by default without any extra setup.
I presume that under the hood it just sends a dir command,
parses the response then does its own autocompletion in response
to what the user types. But it's all transparent to the user.
