    I have tried several ftp applications, transmit, yummy etc.

    I plan to make an update to my site and I would like to know if there is any mac ftp program which supports several ftp functions like the ones described below:

    - Rename all files of the remote hosting server, at once (like _old_site_files_filename). Also exclude the renaming of existing folders.

    - Add files to folders that already exist, without overwriting/replacing folders themselves, but just adding the new files inside folders. Keep existing folders without replacing them. Some folders have special permissions attached to them, so it would be a mess to replace them because then I would have to set all permissions from the beginning...

    I hope there is a solution for these tasks in a mac os x ftp application. I wait your help.

    Have you tried Interarchy? I believe it may do some of what you're looking for.

    Cyberduck is an open source FTP client that supports very advanced functionality.

    However, you may need to use SSH/FTP / SCP over the command line to do what you want. But check out Cyberduck.
