       gftp - a graphical ftp client

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

       gFTP is a multiprotocol file transfer program for  X  Windows  and  the
       console.	 It  features  support	for the FTP, SSH, HTTP, and local file
       system protocols, simultaneous downloads, resuming of interrupted  file
       transfers,  file transfer queues, downloading of entire directores, ftp
       and http proxy support, remote directory caching, bookmarks menu,  stop
       button and many more features

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

       --help, -h
	      Display program usage, and quit

       --version, -v
	      This will display the current version of gFTP, and exit

       --download, -d
	      This tells gFTP to download the files and directories  specified
	      in the url passed on the command line.

       user   This  is the username that you will login as to the remote site.
	      If no username is supplied, the default is to  login  as	anony‐

       pass   This is the password you will use to login to the remotesite. If
	      you do not enter a password, then gFTP will ask you for one when
	      it  starts  up. I do not recommend entering your password on the
	      command prompt. Anyone that has access to your machine  will  be
	      able  to	see your username and password with the ps(1) command.
	      If you are logging in as anonymous, you do not need  to  pass  a
	      password	since  gFTP will automatically send your email address
	      as your password.

       site   This is the remote site you want to connect to

       port   This is the port that the remote server is listening on. If  you
	      do  not  enter  a	 port,	it  will default to using the ftp port
	      listed in the services(5)	 file.	If  the	 entry	doesn't	 exist
	      there, it will default to port 21.

	      This  is	the  default  directory to change to once you are con‐
	      nected to the remote server.

	      Per user configuration file. This file is commented  very	 well,
	      so that is why there isn't a manpage for it. Most of the options
	      in here can be set inside gFTP itself.

       If you find any bugs in	gFTP,  please  report  them  directly  to  the
