The GNOME gFTP client provides all the typical features of FTP, including the ability to save profiles of common connections. Figure 23.1 shows a typical gFTP session in action. On the left panel is the local host, and on the right panel is the remote server. A connection is initiated by typing the address of the host into the host field, a specific port if not the standard FTP port (21), a valid username for the server, and a password. After the information has been entered, clicking the icon that looks like a monitor will start the connection to the server. The bottom panel displays session information, such as changing directories, as seen in Figure 23.1.
