Transferring files with gFTP

Filed under
HowTos

gFTP is a complete, easy-to-use file transfer tool for the Linux desktop. In spite of its name, gFTP can transfer files using more than standard File Transfer Protocol; it provides several features that make it more than just another FTP client.

The gFTP interface comprises three main sections: from top to bottom, a tool/connection bar, file transfer windows, and progress/log area. The connection bar, as its name suggests, is where you enter connection settings. All file management and transfer initiation takes place in the transfer windows. The progress/log area contains a pane that shows the transfer status of files and a scrolling log of all the actions in the current session.

When gFTP is launched, the transfer window on the left defaults to your home directory; the transfer window on the right is empty. To establish a connection with a remote host, fill in the settings in the connection bar and click the connect.
