ftp client help


I have 10mb of free space with my cable provider. I need a ftp client to be able to log in and upload files. I did search, and most seem to cost money. I found this one for free, gFTP, have any of you used it? I would like a program that is very easy to use. I will just be uploading photos and maybe a song or two. I am open to any suggestions. It would be a plus if it is in portage, not at all nessasary.

If you did full install with either Gentoo or Slackware, gFTP comes with the Gnome packages. So if you've installed Gnome, you most likely already have gFTP.

There are many other command line ftp's already included as well with Linux. I'm not sure where you looking but just about all FTP clients for Linux are free.. www.sourceforge.net

There is no reason to pay for a FTP client. There are plenty command line and GUI clients available. Just head over to Freshmeat and do a quick search. I'm sure you'll find that several of them are already bundled into your distribution.
