yafc - Yet another FTP client
This manual documents Yafc. Yafc is quite a powerful ftp
client. It is a console interface to the ftp protocol. If you're
looking for a nice GUI client, Yafc is not for you. If you, however,
use ftp often and want a fast, powerful, friendly client Yafc is here
Some of the features are recursive get/put/ls/rm, nohup transfers,
colored ls, cached directory listings, autologin and bookmarks,
powerful aliases and extensive tab completion.
- -a, --anon
Try an anonymous login, ie login as "anonymous" with your email address as
password. Your email address is first looked for in the config file
("anon_password"), then in the $EMAIL environment variable. If it's not
found, a guess is made from your user- and hostname.
- -d, --debug
Print all messages sent to/from server.
- -D, --dump-rc
Prints the default configuration file to standard output.
- -m MECH, --mechanism=MECH
Try security mechanism MECH when logging in to the host specified on the
command line. This will override any 'mech' options in yafcrc or
bookmarks. MECH is a colon-separated string,
supported values are "krb4", "krb5" and "none". The mechanisms are tried in
the order specified.
- -n, --norc
Do not read the users configuration file. This will cause yafc to use its default settings.
- -p, --noproxy
Do not connect via the proxy. This should be used if connection to a host on
the local network.
- -q, --quiet
Do not print the welcome message with copyright information when starting Yafc.
- -r FILE, --rcfile=FILE
Read another configuration file.
- -t FILE, --trace[=FILE]
Enable creation of trace file. Trace files are mainly for debugging and includes every response
and command Yafc receives/sends. If FILE is specified, use that file instead of the default
trace file (~/.yafc/trace/trace.pid, where pid is the process id number of Yafc.) Trace files can
grow quite large and can safely be deleted.
- -u, --noauto
Do not login automagically to the host specified on the command line. You can
still use bookmark aliases, though.
- -U, --noalias
As ---noauto, but bookmark aliases is disabled (for host on command line).
- -v, --verbose
Print all responses received (without response code.)
- -w, --wait=TIME
Use a different time to wait between connection attempts, in seconds.
This overrides the value set by "connect_wait_time" in the configuration
- -W, --workdir=DIR
Use a different working directory for configuration files and
temporary files. Default is ~/.yafc.
- -V, --version
Print version information on stdout and exit successfully.
- -h, --help
Print a short help description on stdout and exit successfully.
