Need to locate a FTP client for RHEL 5.

To whomever it may concern,

I have been trying to locate a good ftp client for an RHEL 5 server. The vsftp client has been locking up hard whenever there are slight network hiccups. Ideally we would like to look at something that works along side the vsftpd daemon. I had hoped that one of you could make some recommendations.

This a 2.6.18-53.1.4.el5 kernel and we are running version 2.0.5-10.el5 of vsftpd, if that helps.

I have been looking around but cannot seem to find either a standalone client or a build that indicates that the bulid is compatible with RHEL 5.

Thanks in advance.

Here's what the Arch package manager offers: (Ignore the "extra"--that's the repository name.)

extra bftpd 2.6-1
extra gftp 2.0.19-2
extra lftp 4.0.6-1
extra ncftp 3.2.3-1
extra obexftp 0.23-3
extra proftpd 1.3.3-1
extra pure-ftpd 1.0.29-1
extra tftp-hpa 5.0-3
extra vsftpd 2.2.2-2

If you don't find anything with your package manager, then try googling some of these.

Is your system registered with RHN?

Many thanks.

Thanks. I knew I was going to the right place. It looks like ncftp will work well.
