gui file copy application


is there a gui file copy application on linux similiar to coreftp or winscp.. i'm familiar with the scp command, but i'm hoping to find something that would allow me to click on a number of files and have them moved from one linux server to another linux server.. the files don't necessarily have anything in common other than they maybe in the same directory, and not all the files in that directory would need to be copied?

Hi dthaler,

I am not aware of any GUI utility to copy files like WinSCP does. The best I could suggest is to configure the destination location as nfs/cifs export on source (vice-versa) and then copy it using regular file browser. But scp is better way to copy over the files without any hassles.

I use gftp for that it can handle FTP and SSH/SCP transfers.

When I used KDE, I recall konqueror could browse remote server through ssh with fish://user@server url

Filezilla; can do sftp or ftp; very easy to use. May be in your repo, if not http://filezilla-project.org/
MS & Linux versions avail.
