    Hi
    What about midnight-commander (mc) or just scp and sftp from the CLI?

    What's wrong with 'sftp'? :-)

    Tried mc but it keep giving vague error "unabe to chdir to xxxx". Pretty sure I have input everything correctly.
    Or maybe mc doesn't support key authentication?

    Im transferring lots of individual files and directories with annoyingly long and unique names between two remote server.

    Having sort of gui to allow me to traverse through remote directory with minimum typing would be good.

    Ah. Then you need something like mc, but part of the functionality was
    removed due to a not solved bug :-/

    I can't find the reference in this laptop; I must have it on the desktop
    machine. I'll try to search for it later. Ping me if I forget.

    I haven't tried it, can "tree" work on an FTP remote directory?
    As for transferring files around on a remote server (not client <>server), that can be a problem with the classic command line FTP client. Don't know if the enhanced FTP client addresses this fundamental FTP issue.

    Found it. Thread started 201412 on maillist

    http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse/2.../msg00500.html

    And some extracts:

    JA> I take it back. SFTP-link does not appear to attempt publickey, it
    always attempts
    JA> to use password, and therefore requires the server to accept
    passwordauthentication.

    AB> https://www.midnight-commander.org/ticket/3238

    AB> From briefly looking at mc sources, it should support both agent and
    key authentications, but apparently you need to configure key in mc, it
    does not use
    AB> default key(s) from ~/.ssh. It does *not* support
    keyboard-interactive and that is really a bug.
