GUI for FTP with non-windows platform

I used to use WINDOWS Command Prompt to transfer file in command mode rather than GUI. Using Command Line Interface (CLI) to FTP non-WINDOWS system could be little confusing and requires long time to get along with the method. Here quick refresh on how to use GUI with WRQ Reflection X to transfer files by using drag and drop method. This is non-free program but it's worth to spend for.

Currently I'm using version 8.0.2.

This screen shows you the initial screen after you click on FTP Client from your program list. Select the available host if any. Otherwise, just create a new FTP site by clicking NEW button. At this screen, I'm connecting to AIX platform. Once you click connect, you'll see lots of folder on the right pane. This pane represents your FTP site and on the left pane is your computer folder structure.

As you can see, I can have the same function as my WINDOWS XP system. I can zip the files on my FTP site (AIX platform). And also perform several other functions. Click the image for larger image. From here you are allowed to drag file or files from right pane to the left pane or vice versa. You'll be prompt to transfer in binary mode or others. Have a nice try on this.
