You need to click 'Add SFTP Connection' in the command bar.

Leaving the ticket open to remind us to try to make this more obvious. Perhaps we can just open the 'Add' dialog automatically if there are no hosts set up yet. That might be annoying but a dialog with a 'never ask again' box might be a reasonable compromise:

No existing connections
-----------------------
    -> Add new connection
    -> Leave empty
