Is the project dead?
This would be a real pity because KDE (or linux itself) is in need of a great, user friendly and stable FTP client. I hoped that your kftpgrabber will do this job. But now its very silent about this project :(
It seems that a great FTP program is a real pain to code because all FTP projects are dead/buggy/not useable or something else.

Bummer!

Hi there,

i uploaded about 450mb of packages with this app yesterday and my package manager tells me that they're all broken (wrong md5sum)...

After this experience, i uploaded eveything again with ncftpput and it works perfectly...

I dont know what this is, but its not my dsl line or the ftp server, there seems something badly broken withing this app...

This piece of software looks so compromising,
but it is crashing really too often for so many versions now.
I feel sorry to say that, but it seems
to be rather unusable on amd64 computers at the moment...
I hope this will change someday,
because it also has very fundamental and needed features like (TLS/SSL) etc.

Hmm, for me kftpgrabber works quite well on amd64, at least the basic functions I use ;-) I don't even remember the last crash...

I use rather "new" stuff on my gentoo system
(glibc-2.5/gcc-4.1.1/etc but safe CFLAGS),
perhaps this won't work very well.
Btw., most crashes happen here when
uploading/resuming uploads, this just doesn't work here
(Example: i get asked if i want to resume a file->Click on [Yes]-> 5 seconds later -> Crash)
while other tools like gftp seem to have no problem with that.
hm?!

PS: i feel sorry, but kftgrabber is
the only tool behaving that way :/

I also like this app very much. It still has some problems eg. deleting many files on a remote ftp server is very slow. I am using it to manage a large (shared) rpm repo (9000+ srpm/rpms) and its greatest advantage over something like gftp is how you can compare files in dirs. You can easily identify and select differing files between host and remote dirs (unlike gftp which doesn't hide files that are the same).

For those of you that don't like the pop up balloons after transfers, its just a simple matter to disable them in using its configuration options (like I do).

kftgrabber is also the only decent linux ftp app that I can find that will also connect to an ftp server that is using ftp over TLS/SSL (implicit). I have tried others and none seem to work for me.

Keep up the good work guys :-)

Very slow transfers for many files. Totally unecessary bubble popups for a totally unecessary systray icon, every file.

And it hung halfway through. Then various other things broke.

Shows promise. But currently I cannot rely on it.

Have to say I agree about the bubble popups and systray icon. But I totally like this thing.
