any ftp under linux which support resume ?

Is there any ftp ( which can be wrong in x-ternimal ) that will support file resume ?(except the graphical gFTP, having problem with it now )
I have seen lftp, sftp...etc,
but I don't know which one will support file resume?
if there is any , is there any command for resuming?
it seems whenever I type "get" or "recieve"
the files will get overwrite automatically ( or error occur)

thanks for the help

Hi wanni!!!

I use myself gftp and it's a graphical environment. I think it's pretty good if you like graphical stuff . I've not tried to resume downloads, but I believe it will.
I also don't know which distribution you are using. If it's Redhat, you have gftp in your CD's already.

Good luck!
