    Connection manager for ftp

    Good night.

    Is there any connection manager for ftp? (something similar to ftp manager in total commander).
    It should be able to save access info about any connection, so that i won't need to feel it all again.

    I don't need filezilla, gFtp or any other stand-alone ftp client.
    I'm looking for a more integrated into gnome way.

    Gnome shell extension would be the best option. (like dropdown menu with a list of all saved accesses to the different ftps).

    Thanks in advance.

    I guess you run the file browser Nautilus.

    Choose the menu item
    File -- Connect to server
    and in the GUI you can select various connection modes including FTP.

    Once a connection is established it can be saved as a bookmark (and it appears on the left panel for future use). Is this what you want?

    thank you for an answer.

    I know about this option, but It's not convenient for me.
    First of all, I have a lot of ftp accounts (30-40) and I don't want to have all of them in front of me all the time when I use Nautilus.
    Second of all, It would be better to have a separated from a local bookmarks place for my ftp accounts.

    Now I'm thinking about making some bash scripts or writing a gnome shell extension for my purpose.

    Gigolo is the tool for you.
    It can bookmark remote locations including FTP and connect/disconnect on-the-fly. It integrates with the GIO/GVFS framework.
    For maximum efficiency I suggest you set the Preferences/Interface to show the side panel and the detailed list mode.

    Cheers!
