    is there a FTP utility in linux


    I am raja, a graduate cs student and i am a linux newbie.I have a need to transfer files from one linux server to another ( the files are servlets running in apache tomcat to be precise). I can download the files from the first server and then upload them again to the second one( i mean manually copying each again and again ).. Is there a FTP utility that would help me to tranfer files between two linux machines?

    Do you mean an FTP Client? If so, there is gFTP and KBear.

    To transfer files to and from Linux machines, it's probably better to use "scp" or "sftp"; since they are encrypted. And "scp" allows you to transfer stuff directly in one line on the command line.

    If you need an FTP client Krusader is one I recommend based on my expereince. I use it every day. It's easy and efficient and doubles as a file manager as well.
