assuming you use tramp and ssh add this to your .emacs:

(push (slime-create-filename-translator 
       :machine-instance "name of machine as returned by (machine-instance)"
       :remote-host "address (fqdn or ip) of machine"
       :username "username to login with")

the slime-create-filename-translator's docstring for all the details.

if you don't use tramp then you'll need to do something else, but i
can't say what without knowing what kind of setup you have.

Ring the bells that still can ring.
Forget your perfect offering.

That's how the light gets in.
