Question What is the best free ftp software for Linux?


Hello.
I have a website I want to maintain under Linux, but I don't know any ftp software.
So my question is:
What is the best free ftp software for Linux?
Something simple is great too!
Thx!
Max

if you're running kde, you can simply enter the ftp address in any file manager window

I can't do this with my host, since most of the time I get a 421 error message like:
"There are 10 user logged in" and so on!
So I want to have a nice ftp browser to upload my files.
I guess there must be one no?
Thx,
Max

You might want to look into sftp. From the man page:

sftp is an interactive file transfer program, similar to ftp(1), which
performs all operations over an encrypted ssh(1) transport. It may also
use many features of ssh, such as public key authentication and compres-
sion. sftp connects and logs into the specified host, then enters an in-
teractive command mode.

You can find it here:
http://www.openssh.com/
