FTP *client* ?

I've seen gFTP, I don't like it much. I use lFTP right now. It's ok, but the CLI is tedious for navigating back and forth between directories and such...etc, etc.

Anyway, what's available? I'm looking for a FlashFXP clone of some sort.

"what's available? "

The three FTP clients that I use regularly are gFTP, kbear, and Mozilla download manager.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.

gftp is what I use under x11 in osx. axyftp is also a good choice. I used iglooftp for a while under linux x11 and it is real good. A lot like ws_ftp in windows.

What about gftp do you not like? Maybe I could make a better recommendation if I knew what you did not like about it.

I use gFTP as well, but I've used AxyFTP and it's also very good.

I do not think gFTP likes ftp usernames with the @ symbol used. I find that whenever I attempt to send or retrieve a file, it disconnects me and tries to reconnect.
