FTP server incorporated into file system


What I mean is if I access /home/sc/uni it would prompt me for my username and password then connect to my university ftp server. So basically a mount point for an FTP server

What exactly is the question? setting up a mount point to load your unis ftp location?? i dont know if you can do this, i've seen remote shares mounted via NFS but they would need a rule in their exports file to allow your machine to mount it.

I can't see why you don't just ftp in, you get basic shell comands like ls etc from there

ftp <server ip>
enter login details, once in you should have a shell like interface.

binary - puts it into binary mode

ls - list files/directories
get <file> - downloads file
put <file> - uploads file
mget <files i.e *.*> - downloads many files
mput <files i.e *.*> - uploads many files

you could also get Gftp (GUI ftp client) - http://gftp.seul.org/

if its in one of your sources:

su
apt-get install gftp
