    how do i do this? i'm sure i've done it before but it would have been so long ago...

    i was using fetch on my os9 machine, but os9 is gone now so i should re-learn how to do this the right way...i can't find info any where...

    instructions or a link to some instructions por favor?

    merci beaucoup...v

    are you looking to use terminal to ftp?

    use scp. though there are some GUI based ones out there that might be easier to use... like fugu. (try searching in versiontracker.)

    thanks...

    rlogin and telnet didn't work...i think my server doesn't allow it...i also realized that Transmit does do chmod stuff - i just couldn't find it...

    You can use the "ftp" command, but you should really use "sftp" or "scp" if your server supports encryption. Type "man ftp", "man sftp", or "man scp" to read the Unix-style manual pages for these programs in your Terminal window.

    As a previous poster mentioned, there are graphical alternatives like Fugu, Interarchy, and CyberDuck, which you can find on VersionTracker.

    Cheers,

    if you are trying rlogin or telnet, you must be trying to access remote logins... try ssh.

    if your user name is xxx and the server name is yyy.com, type:

    ssh xxx@yyy.com

    you may be asked to accept encryption key the first time, type "yes."
    then you'll be prompted for a password.

    sftp is maybe the best way, its easy and clean, just cd to the right directorys/folders and use put or get.

    By the way, why don't you continue to use Fetch...? 4.0.3 works fine with OS X...

    if you want to use a graphical alternative i have found RBrowser Lite to be good. With a lot of other ftp browser programs i found that either it was unable to even login to the uni ftp server that i use, or that if it could login that it was able to let me download stuff but not upload (this is also a problem when i try using "connect to server" through finder).
