    Good FTP app for linux?


    Can anyone recommend me a good FTP client for Linux?Something simple will do,but advanced features are also welcome.

    I use KBear, which has recently become very nice. There's also GFtp which I don't find as easy to use, and it lacks some features of KBear I like (like being able to open multiple sites in one session, and no timeouts).

    konqueror is an excellent FTP client (try it!).

    For the command line, ncftp is BY FAR the best option, auto completion, wildcard downloading with status updates, the list goes on. This is pretty much the only FTP client I use.

    I tried opening my ftp folder with Konqueror but all I got is a blank page with the text 0 files in the statusbar,I must be missing something (?).

    ncftp looks pretty sweet and GFtp is also pretty good,too bad that I dont have kbear,will have to try that once
