Assuming that you use public key authentication (and thus do not need to type a password), the following *should* work on a Unix system, but I have not tested it: Import["!ssh remote-machine cat path/to/your/file", "Table"] (It is important to explicitly specify the data type, e.g. "Table", when Import is reading from a pipe.)
