What is NcFTP?
NcFTP is a user interface to the Internet standard File Transfer Protocol. This program allows a user to transfer files to and from a remote network site, and offers additional features that are not found in the standard interface, ftp.
The program runs in one of three modes: visual mode, line mode, and colon mode.
If your system is somewhat modern, the default mode should be visual mode. This is a full-screen interface that uses the curses library. With visual mode, you edit the program's settings with a nice screen interface instead of typing arcane commands.
