RedHat & FTP


Does RH 7.2 come with a graphical FTP program? If so, where exactly is it when using KDE? If not, what is command syntax of uploading a file to a Linux server using FTP? In the case of the latter would you provide an example in addition to the syntax of the command? TIA.

Don't know about graphical ftp clients, I hate them. Most command line ftps use:

[code]
ls
cd
put filename
get filename
[code]

(LiSt files in current directory, Change Directory, PUT file on server, GET file from server)

lls and lcd for moving about your hard disk from within the ftp client.

For command line ftp I generally use ncftp, it has tab completion and resume (which are very useful)

Would the following command when in text mode be correct?

ftp <open> <name of server> <put> <filename>

What of specifying the paths of the file in terms of where it is being got and put?

To dorward: From your example if I understand it correctly.

1: Open an FTP session with the server, and log in with whatever username and password one has.

2: Navigate to the directory to where one wants to place a file.

3: Use the put command.

4: Specify one's directory and filename to be placed in the server's corresponding directory.

$ ftp nameofsite.com
ftp name or login:> type your login here
ftp password:> password goes here
ftp> start using your commands...
ftp> quit
goodbye
