What is Xftp?
xftp is a X front end to ftp. It allows retrieval or transmission of selected files and directory trees.
Xftp is built on the Motif toolkit, and provides a nice GUI interface to ftp for UNIX systems, a la the Macintosh program Fetch. It also allows third-party transfers. (i.e. user running xftp on host A can transfer files from host B to host C.)
