I've always ended up with an error, but I can't say that I've played
around with it. One of the things that I wish to do is to name and copy
an entire directory, recursively. With gftp I can do that now, and in
fact even multiple directories in one selection. Perhaps that was sftp
though, I don't recall if it was that or scp at the time. I've switched
back and forth. Someone else mentioned the banner getting in the way,
and I know that this has been a problem for me in the past; back then I
might have not noticed the banner and made the assumption it was
something else failing.
