JEdit FTP plug-in is handy
Authored by: temelcoff on Jan 30, '03 09:24:01PM

For a free way to upload and modify files on a FTP server without using the Terminal ftp utility try installing JEdit and installing the FTP plug-in. Works great for me. Can't seem to delete files on the server though, except through command line FTP in Terminal.

Safari and FTP site
Authored by: glennmurtagh on Apr 19, '04 06:27:23PM

Does anyone know why i get permissions error when trying to upload to a ftp site using Safari? I can use Transmit and it works fine, and also on a dreaded PC it works with IE (drag and drop) with the same account and password. Thanks.

Safari and FTP site

Because, as the parent post says, OSX mounts it as a read-only volume.

Why the hell does it do that?

KDE, and even Windows, mount FTP servers read-write, so why not OS X? I upload to FTP servers more often than I download. It seems nonsensical for native FTP to be read-only.
