Browsing a FTP server in Linux with Nautilus

view story

http://thelinuxblog.net – Generally, I use 01FTP for updating and changing the website, but to be honest that is rather slow and I much prefer having all my programs to do editing available. I found an excellent way of browsing FTP servers as if the folders were on your machine in Nautilus, which is very useful for editing files on a remote server, because you can use your custom IDE rather than being forced having to use several programs. To do this is simple. Start up Nautilus and go to file > Connect to Server. You should get a pop up. On that you need to click on the “Public FTP” drop down list and on that select (FTP with login) Enter all the required values in the fields. (You will be asked for a password later if you need one) Nautilus will now connect to the server and should ask you for a password if you need one. If that all goes well, you should be able to browse the FTP server like it is on your computer! (Distributions)
