This module contains FTP and lftp programs. FTP is the user interface to the Internet standard File Transfer Protocol. The program just allows a user to transfer files to and from a remote network site. LFTP is a program that allows sophisticated ftp and http connections to other hosts. It can handle many file access methods including ftp, ftps, http, https, hftp, fish and file.
Every operation in LFTP is reliable, that is any non-fatal error is ignored and the operation is retried. LFTP has shell-like command syntax. It has also a built in mirror feature which can download or upload a whole directory tree.
To learn about many more features, see 'man lftp'.
