You can use your web browser to download files from an FTP server, but to upload files you need an FTP client. The
gFTP client, included on the Linux CD-ROM, is an excellent choice, because its user interface resembles that of popular Microsoft Windows FTP clients, such as WS-FTP.
Figure 11.8 shows the gFTP client. To connect to a remote system, click on Remote → Connect, identify the system’s hostname, specify any necessary userid or password, and click on
Connect. To upload a file, click on the name of the file in the local list box at the left of the window and then click on →. To download a file, click on the name of the file in the list box at the right of the window and then click on ←. When you’ve transferred all your files, click on Remote → Disconnect.
