good gui ftp client program?

don't know if this should be in the software forum, but i'm afraid to leave the newbie section:

i'm looking for a good gui ftp client. i don't really care for gftp (it seems to have some problems with ssh, no?) and i just prefer the gui interface ftp... any recommendations?

i'm using mandrake 9.2 and running windowmaker.
on my windows machine, i've been using smart ftp and i was hoping i could find something comparable.

hmm...can't tolerate non-graphical ftp-clients? I prefer them...don't know why - possibly because I like all console-based stuff...

imo gftp is the "best" there is...or at least, of what I've seen. have you tried to see their webpage, faqs or something to solve the ssh-problem (or what kind of problem is it)?

gftp times out when i try to ftp to my friend's box on port 22 (ssh). as soon as i switch to 21, it's fine. maybe he's telling me it's set up to handle ssh.

i just downloaded axyftp and it seems okay. i was just wondering if there are any wonderful ftp programs out there that i should know about.

i'll have to dig into the ssh problem a little deeper. might be a pbkac.
