Thread: FTP Client

  1. #1

    Default FTP Client

    What ftp clients does opensuse 11.3 come with?

    It used to have KFTP but I can't find it in 11.3.

    Depends on what you want the client to do. If only downloads, any web browser is also a ftp client.

    For GUI ftp clients, filezilla is one. And of course there is the good old fashioned CLI ftp.

    well, I have been using KFTP, so I'd be looking for something similar.

    I never used KFTP, but recently installed FileZilla to upload files to my web site. Try em all, use the one you like best.

    i have no idea what KFTP looked like, but if you are using Firefox
    just add FireFTP and you are done...it is impossibly easy to
    understand the GUI which displays in your browser..

    as far as i can tell KFTP was a KDE3 program and no one has bothered
    to build a new one for the 'improved' KDE4...so, move on..

    I use Konqueror as an FTP client. Proabably not the best, but it comes with
    KDE4.

    I am using both gFTP and FileZilla under 11.3 (32-bit, Lenovo X61 Tablet). I prefer gFTP (FileZilla seems slow; someone told me it has to re-eastablish connection upon every new command) but have found I get on better with some of the many machines at my university with FileZilla. jdw

    You can use Dolphin as an FTP client then it is truly transparent. It is like the FTP site is part of the file system.

    Just add the entry to places
