            old but good
            still compiles without a problem on a Red Hat 7.1. Old,
            but works perfect.
            Faster and smaller than a lot of new ftp clients.

            Love the app...
            It looks like ws-ftp classic version. Sure you may have to refresh at times, but one mouse click extra doesn't make a bad program. It compiles on Caldera 2.3 without any problems.

            It works for me
            I've just installed this after failing with the 0.4.4 source yesterday - got foiled by the name change.
            Now I've got a WS-ftp clone for FreeBSD which is useful because downloading those directories is a pain.
            If anyone wants a model for the ideal ftp client under windows then check out LeechFTP ( runs under Windows and is closed but freeware.
