Multiple File Transfers FTP Client 4 Linx

I"m searching 4 ages now and I'm tired of compiling FTP Clients. I need a client that can handle multiple downloads and uploads. Actually I need a LeechFTP 4 Linux. I only found clients that handle 1 download at a time and queue everything else. Like I said a LeechFTP. thx 4 answering mates.

I use the ncftp client and it works great. if you do "bgget" or "bgput" it will do the stuff in the background for you, so you can still browse around.

once you do something like "bgget file" it will begin downloading when you exit the program, or if you do "bgstart".

It will also resume downloading files if the connection gets broken.

try it out.... I really like it a lot
