ftp-based file manager?


Hello again - another question I'm afraid...

Is there an equivelent for Ubuntu Dapper to the windows utility WebDrive? I got used to using that to upload files to my websites.

It'd be great if I could find a Linux equivelent!

Does anybody know of one?

Thanks

how are we supposed to suggest a replacement for an application we do not necessarily know anything about?!?

if you want a file manager over ftp, then i'd suggest taking a look at the fuse project, which would allow a local mount vai ssh. then you can just use whatever generic file manager you want.

That's a valid point. Apologies for making assumptions...

That sounds like exactly what I'm looking for - thanks for the tip!

I'll go take a look for it.

Thanks again (and apologies for the assumptions.)

hehe no problem. fuse can seem a little complicated from what it is, basically it's a sort of user land wrapper which converts virtually any remote connection protocol (and other things besides) into a mountable filesystem... i would asume that it'd be ftpfs runnign with fuse. (take protocol name, and add "fs" to end end)

It looks great - I've installed fuse and sshfs which works fine with sudo, I just need to figure out how to get the rights without sudo - once I get that figured it'll be perfect for my needs

I haven't found a source for ftpsh yet - but I'm still hunting

Thanks again for the pointer / advice !

<edit>
Just for info - I installed the latest version of fuse (not the version in the Ubuntu repository) and now it works fine - it's a great system and with all that built in security too, what more could I want?
</edit>

Cheers
Clive
