KDE FTP client?

O.k... This is about the last question I have... I've just installed LFS and am looking for an ftp client like gftp.... I'm under the impression that proftp is like an ftp server of sorts..... Not really what I want, I think. Someone correct me if I'm wrong... I installed kdebase, kdelibs and kdeutils in opt so I could use licq, k3b and Konqueor (to use as a file manager) on fluxbox..... I am completely done with the blfs book and all the extra stuff I wanted to install except for having a nice gui to upload files to my server..... I would have thought that I'd have a "kftp" or something... Is there such a program that I am over looking? If not, can you suggest something that would suit my needs? I have alot of libs installed already... The gtk's, glibs and kdelibs. Might be nice if I could stick with something that relies on KDE... I'm already up to 3 gigs and I need to quit installing deps/libs... She's starting to get bloated in size..... gtk+ is fine too. I'm just not going to start installing a whole slew of gnome deps just for ftp tho.... O.k.. Thanks all....

Just use konqueror - in the address bar enter:

Then you will be prompted for a password.

Hey, thanks... even better.... Not that it matters but my install size is 1.8 gb not 3.1.... :-) I'll give Konqueror a whirl...

I use gftp (I have neither kde or gnome installed, and it has no dependencies afaik except for gtk2). There is also an ftp client for kde called kbear but you have to install it yourself, it's not officially part of kde.
