Looking for a good Linux FTP Program
I am launching a website and need a good FTP program to use. I had been using my Mac but want to start using Linux more. Is there a specific ftp program I should look at? I don't need anything fancy, just something easy to use to transfer files both up and down, etc.

Depending on what desktop manager you use, kde's konqueror has a midnight commander view which gives a split pane so you can drag and drop files for ftp. Most of the file browsers that come with the desktop manager allow ftp.
For a dedicated ftp client, try filezilla. It comes packaged in many linux flavours and is probably part of your distros extra/addon options.

You could also check out gFTP, which is for gnome but will work in KDE too.

You can get it from your distro repos.

I personally am a big fan of the commandline "ftp" utility.
If you're looking for a graphical program, gFTP is pretty good, and there's also a Firefox extension called FireFTP that a number of people use. That one is nice because it runs on any platform, so you don't need to learn a new interface if you're working on a Windows or Mac platform.

Nautilus! It's the best that I've found to date. I used Filezilla for awhile but in the end I ended up back in nautilus to do it:
open home folder, cntrl+l
then there you can just directly type the address:
it'll ask for username and password and you'll have full accessBodhi 1.3 & Bodhi 1.4 using E17
