       gftp - file transfer client for *NIX based machines.


       gftp [options] [[proto://][ user : [pass] @] server [: port ][/ directory ]]


       gFTP  is a file transfer client for *NIX based machines. It currently has a text interface
       and a GTK+ 1.2/2.x graphical interface. It  currently  supports  the  FTP,  FTPS  (control
       connection only), HTTP, HTTPS, SSH and FSP protocols.


       You  may  enter  a url on the command line that gFTP will automatically connect to when it
       starts up.

       --help, -h
              Display program usage.

       --info Display some information about how gFTP was built. Please send the output  of  this
              command when submitting a bug report.

       --version, -v
              Display the current version of gFTP.

       proto  This  specifies  the  protocol  that should be used. It can currently be one of the
              following options: ftp, ftps,  http,  https,  ssh,  fsp,  local  and  bookmark.  If
              omitted, the protocol specified by the default_protocol option will be used.

       user   The  username  that  will  be  used to log into the remote server. If omitted, your
              current username will be used  for  most  protocols.  For  the  FTP  protocol,  the
              anonymous username will be used.

       pass   The  password that will be used to log into the remote server. If omitted, you will
              be prompted for the password. If you are using the FTP protocol, and  the  username
              is anonymous, then your email address will be used as the password.

       server The remote server to connect to.

       port   The  remote  port on the server to connect to. If omitted, the default port for the
              protocol will be used. The port will be looked up in the services(5) file.

              The directory to change to once you are connected to the remote server.


              Per user configuration file. Most of these options can be edited inside gFTP.  This
              file is also commented very well.  ~/.gftp/bookmarks
                     Per user bookmarks file.


       If   you   find   any   bugs   in   gFTP,  please  report  them  to  GNOME's  Bugzilla  at
