    ftp program

    can anyone recommend a really good FTP client? I was trying ftpgrabber and it kept quitting on me.

    I tried using the server to connect directly to the FTP site via the go to server in the main menu... no luck - will keep trying various client programs...

    thanks,

    ftp from the command line and gftp if you want a gui
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

    FileZilla is one I use. GFTP is another one that just works.

    I prefer filezilla if you want a gui.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install filezilla

    If you're using firefox, there's an add-on called FireFTP which (obviously) gives you an FTP client built into your browser. Can't really tell you if it's better/worse than any of the other clients suggested in this thread, as I haven't used any of the other recommendations. But FireFTP is pretty cool.
