FTP - Mac Applications & Software

    Default FTP

    I often upload images from my Mac to my ISP's web server, mainly photos
    of stuff I'm selling on eBay.

    I find it easy to just do this with FTP in Terminal. It works great if I
    only have a few files to upload. It's a lot easier and quicker than my
    ISP's "webspace" page where everything is done through a web browser.

    But today I tried to upload a whole folder hierarchy. "put" didn't
    work, it said something like "not a normal file type." What's the FTP "put"
    command for folders containing multiple files?

    But even better than this, I'd like to be able to move files to my ISP
    through OS X's GUI. But I can't get that to work either. In the Finder
    menu I select Go -> Connect to Server, and then enter ftp://my.isp.com.
    Then I get prompted for my ISP username and password. So far so good.
    Then I get the nice desktop icon of my web server at my ISP, but it's
    read-only. I can't upload anything! I'm guessing this is probably an
    ISP problem, but does anyone know of there's some setting somewhere on
    my Mac that will fix this? Does it make sense that my ISP will allow
    FTP uploads via the command line but not through the GUI?

    or for example

    mput z*

    Get a copy of Fetch, a graphic ftp client for the Mac. Very good
    program. You can simply drag and drop a folder to upload it.

    I use RBrowserLite which is free for simple ftp upload/download. Mac OS
    X compatible.

    The Finder FTP support is read-only in Jaguar. This may or may not
    change in future versions of the OS.
