filezilla is in the repositories too.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install filezilla

You can get filezilla but the program is already there in the command line if you are familiar with it.

This is a link to view the command description and options:

and what is the command again to recursively copy contents of folder to destination on ftp? I might need to upload more than a single file at a time. Also there is no auto complete for files, and I often have long file names.

Another handy option, if you use Firefox, is a plugin called FireFTP. I don't have any fancy needs like automation, so it suits my needs. I'm usually browsing at the time I need to xfer a file anyway, so I just click the button and it opens a new tab.
