Use *

If you provide enough of the file name then put an asterisk (*) it will fill in the rest for you. For example you want to access gcc-1.9.2 or what ever version I just made that one up. Then you could type. cd gcc* and then it will fill in the -1.9.2. I have Xandros Linux and Windows XP and they both work that way.

GFTP should work correctly. If you still don't have access, it might be a firewall concern. Sometimes on campus, you are required to call the IT admins to gain access from outside.

mc also allows you to connect to another computer through ssh (shell link)

For simple drag and drop i too recommend nautilus. Also it's convenient to create login scripts for nautilus, as it can easily connect through terminal command (nautilus sftp://user@server); so for instance in case of dynamic IP, the IP address can be called up as variable.
