The same behavior and functionality is retained but the TreeView
is set to not be reorderable, the GtkCTree was reorderable and supported drag'n'drop.
It's simpler but the code is more complex.

Making the TreeView reorderable will complicate things to an unknown degree.

The bookmarks hash table and the GtkCTree used to have
references to each other, but now only the TreeView has pointers
to bookmark entries.

Bookmark->cnode was a pointer to a GtkCTreeNode.
Now it's just a flag variable (or a hack).

FAQ

What are the requirements to run gFTP?

  • GTK 2.24
  • Glib 2.32+

Supported protocols?

  • FTP / FTPS
  • SSH2 (sftp) - requires OpenSSH client: ssh

How do I install gFTP?

Git repository:

  • ./autogen.sh
  • ./configure --prefix=/usr
  • make install

Release tarball:

  • cd gftp-
  • ./configure --prefix=/usr
  • make install

What systems is gFTP known to run on?

  • Linux distributions

If gFTP compiles and runs on a platform not listed here, please go to https://github.com/masneyb/gftp/ and notify us.

How do I report bugs in gFTP?

Go to https://github.com/masneyb/gftp/issues

If you find ANY bugs in gFTP, please check to make sure that you are using the latest version of gFTP.

When sending in bug reports, please try to be as descriptive as possible: what OS/version you are running, what compiler you are compiling with, the output of gftp --info and any other important information.

How do I force running the text or gtk+ version of gFTP?

To run the text port, you can type gftp-text or to run the gtk+ port, you can run the gftp-gtk. The gftp command is just a shell script that checks if your DISPLAY variable is set, and if so it'll run the appropriate version.

Can gFTP download a bunch of files/directories and then exit when it's completed?

Yes, the text port of gFTP supports this well. You can type: gftp-text -d ftp://ftp.somesite.com/someplace. If someplace is a directory, it'll automatically download all of its subdirectories as well. If you want to transfer a file through ssh instead of ftp, just change the ftp:// to ssh://.

GTK UI: do I have to enter a port, username and password to connect to a ftp server?

No you don't. If you leave the port blank, it'll default to the default port for the protocol you selected (port 21 for FTP). If you leave the username blank, it will default to logging in as anonymous.

Where does gFTP store its options?

gFTP will automatically create a ~/.gftp directory when it is first run. Your config file is ~/.gftp/gftprc, and this is where all of gFTP's settings are stored. The config file is well commented, so take a glance at it and see if there is anything you want to change. Your bookmarks are stored in the file ~/.gftp/bookmarks.

Every time gFTP is run, it will log the contents of the log window to ~/.gftp/ gftp.log. The contents of this file will be automatically purged this file when gFTP is started up.

I can't transfer certain file types in binary mode using the FTP protocol.

Edit your ~/.gftp/gftprc file and look at the ext= lines towards the bottom of the file. These lines control what icon is used for each file type. It also controls what mode is used for the file transfer. For example, to transfer all HTML files as binary, change the following two lines:

  • ext=.htm:world.xpm:A:
  • ext=.html:world.xpm:A:

to the following:

  • ext=.htm:world.xpm:B:
  • ext=.html:world.xpm:B:

When gFTP tries to get the remote directory listing, the remote server

complains about either the -a or -L argument to LIST.

If the server is complaining about the -L option, go under FTP->Options->FTP and disable resolve remote symlinks. If it is complaining about the -a option, go to FTP->Options->General and disable show hidden files.

When gFTP tries to get the remote directory listing, I receive the error:

Cannot create a data connection: Connection refused

Go under FTP->Options->FTP and turn off passive file transfers. Instead of sending the PASV command to open up the data connection on the server side, the data connection will be opened up on the client side, and the PORT command will be sent to the server instead.

When using the FTPS protocol, gFTP cannot connect if the remote

server uses a self signed certificate.

You must add the public key of your self signed CA to your OpenSSL certs directory. On my Debian box, the OpenSSL certs are installed in /usr/lib/ssl/ certs.
