from google:

FAR Manager is a program for managing files and archives in Windows operating systems (9x/Me/NT/2000/XP). FAR Manager works in text mode and provides a simple and intuitive interface for performing most of the necessary actions: viewing files and directories, editing, copying and renaming files and many other operations.

Midnight Commander should do the trick. Could/Should be installed. Go to your konsole (terminal) and select a new session and select a Midnight Commander session. Also, gentoo has a file manager that does this exceedingly well.

No clue what FAR is, but copying files between linux boxes is trivially easy with the scp command at the terminal. Do
Code:

man scp
and as long as you can reach one linux box from the other, you're all set. If you can't, try having a 3rd box, visible to both.

Peace,
JimBass

Welcome to LQ.

rsync, sftp or scp is probably what you are looking for in order to do a secure copy.

sorry, the explanation i gave was because there's more than one software tool called far, and i wanted to make sure you knew that i was talking about the right FAR...

Use scp
