There are several, including the command-line client you probably already have. Which desktop environment are you using?? Nautilus (Gnome), and Dolphin or Konqueror (KDE) can handle FTP protocols, and there are MANY others you can easily find. What are you trying to accomplish, and how do you want to use FTP?

Same way you install any other program...either through yum or compile from source.

why do you want to use ftp rather than scp/ sftp/ sshfs ?

ftp is old and antiquated.

You can get the Linux version of Filezilla, if that's what you want.

Is there some other package similiar to filezilla. I want to shift to some other becoz of some of its limitations.

I think that would be better to check with RPM
Code:
# rpm -qai *ftp*
if "*" (asterisks) will be accepted.

Then you should look at using SFTP if you can. Filezilla and other FTP programs will handle SFTP and it is encrypted which makes it more secure than regular FTP.

ncftp

and again to test just type ftp IP at the $ prompt.

unless you MUST use ftp to get access to that data, then you are stuck, but otherwise you really should be using ssh/scp
