yafc - Yet another FTP client
This manual documents 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 for you...
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
- -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
- -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
- -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
- -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.
