    Hi all,
        I am so wanting to leave windoze behind.  I have finally found a java based client to replace enterprise manager, and now I am trying to find something to replace homesite.  One crucial requirement for me is that I be able to "open" an FTP site as a directory.  Homesite does this, by setting up the ftp info, and then read/writing to it like it was a "directory".  Does Screem have a this feature or comparable analogue?

    Thanks for your time,
    john

      The ability is there, but no interface to specify the URL for the ftp site is present yet.

        yeah... typing url into command line works...
        but I have a suggestion.. gnome vfs doesn&#039;t ask for password... you have
        to type it in the url.. that sucks.
        I would suggest having a dialog to input password... and hide it.
        and some trees from remote site would be good too.

        well... at this point I would say... I&#039;ll let you do the coding... just
        keep my ideas to myself :)

      I haven't tried with FTP, but for SFTP, I can mount the tree from Nautlius (where it will ask for my password and optionally save it to gnome-keyring) then when I browse to it from Screem, the files are available.  I just have to give Screem access to my keyring.  It works really nicely, aside from the occasional crashes. :)

      yes, this thread is from way back before such functionality was available from nautilus and the file selector.

      so, what is the verdict here? is there a definitive answer to this question: "can we do FTP?", and if so, where might we find some guidance?

      i've tried this method as shown in the screen cap gallery, but w/ FTP. i crashes the program on my system
