    FileZilla/ftp on Linux

    Any Linux users out there?

    Have recently started using Linux Mint (based on Ubuntu, in turn based on Debian) and am absolutely loving it. Performance over Vista on my laptop has been staggering - my only stumbling block at the moment is with ftp.

    I have tried gFTP, kFTP Grabber and FileZilla and none will allow me to graphically transfer directories and contents. The only way to transfer in this fashion that I have found is to manually create a mirrored structure and transfer files individually - not particularly efficient!

    I have got the win version of FileZilla working with Wine, but I'd prefer to use Linux native software if at all possible. Has anyone else come across this problem, or is anyone able to offer a solution?

    Many thanks,

    H

    I use FireFTP on Windows, it is free and cross-platform (it is a firefox plugin) and I like it better than FileZilla.

    It is cross-platform. I just happen to use it on Windows.

    A donation is double cool, since half the money goes to help orphans in underdeveloped countries. I chipped in a bit when I started using the software as well.
