File Transfer with the Versatile GFTP
FTP and Beyond
Whether you like your file transfers with a GUI or from a command prompt,
GFTP has the right tool for every job.The GFTP client also supports advanced
features such as secure file transfer with SSH.
GFTP is a versatile and efficient
File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
client for Linux systems. GFTP,
which was written by Brian Masney, performs
all the standard chores associated
with downloading and uploading files to
FTP servers, and it also offers additional
services, such as HTTP file transfer, SSHbased
file transfer, and simultaneous
download from multiple servers. The
GFTP program provides several useful
features that add efficiency to your FTP
sessions, such as drag and drop, intelligent
prompting for existing files, direct
input for FTP commands, and direct
transfer between two FTP servers.
GFTP comes in two flavors: the
gftp-gtk variant supports convenient
GUI-based file transfers, whereas gftptext
is a text-based FTP client used with
the shell. If you type gftp, your system
may launch either the X11 version or the
text version, depending on how your
system is configured.
