       ncftp - Browser program for the File Transfer Protocol

       ncftp [host]

       ncftp [ftp://host.name/directory/]

       The purpose of ncftp is to provide a powerful and flexible interface to the Internet stan-
       dard File Transfer Protocol.  It is intended to replace the stock ftp program  that  comes
       with the system.

       Although  the program appears to be rather spartan, you'll find that ncftp has a wealth of
       valuable performance and usage features.  The program was designed  with  an  emphasis  on
       usability,  and	it  does  as  much as it can for you automatically so you can do what you
       expect to do with a file transfer program, which is transfer files between  two	intercon-
       nected systems.

       Some  of  the  cooler  features include progress meters, filename completion, command-line
       editing, background processing, auto-resume downloads, bookmarking, cached directory list-
       ings,  host  redialing,	working  with firewalls and proxies, downloading entire directory
       trees, etc., etc.

       The ncftp distribution comes with the useful utility programs ncftpget(1) and  ncftpput(1)
       which  were designed to do command-line FTP.  In particular, they are very handy for shell
       scripts.  This version of ncftp no longer does command-line FTP, since the main ncftp pro-
       gram is more of a browser-type program.

       The  program allows you to specify a host or directory URL on the command line.	This is a
       synonym for running ncftp and then using the open command.  A few command-line  flags  are
       allowed with this mode:

       -u XX   Use username XX instead of anonymous.

       -p XX   Use password XX with the username.

       -j XX   Use account XX in supplement to the username and password (deprecated).

       -P XX   Use port number XX instead of the default FTP service port (21).

       Upon running the program you are presented a command prompt where you type commands to the
       program's shell.  Usually you will want to open a remote filesystem to transfer	files  to
       and  from your local machine's filesystem.  To do that, you need to know the symbolic name
       of the remote system, or its Internet Protocol (IP) address.  For example, a symbolic name
       might  be  ``typhoon.unl.edu,''	and  its IP address could be ``''	To open a
       connection to that system, you use the program's open command:

	    open typhoon.unl.edu

       Both of these try to open the machine called typhoon at the University of Nebraska.  Using
       the  symbolic  name  is the preferred way, because IP addresses may change without notice,
       while the symbolic names usually stay the same.

       When you open a remote filesystem, you  need  to  have  permission.   The  FTP  Protocol's
       authentication  system is very similar to that of logging in to your account.  You have to
       give an account name, and its password for access to that account's files.  However,  most
       remote systems that have anything you might be interested in don't require an account name
       for use.  You can often get anonymous access to a remote  filesystem  and  exchange  files
       that have been made publicly accessible.  The program attempts to get anonymous permission
       to a remote system by default.  What actually happens is that the  program  tries  to  use
       ``anonymous''  as  the  account	name,  and when prompted for a password, uses your E-mail
       address as a courtesy to the remote system's maintainer.  You can have the program try  to
       use a specific account also.  That will be explained later.

       After  the open command completes successfully, you are connected to the remote system and
       logged in.  You should now see the command prompt change to reflect the name of	the  cur-
       rent  remote  directory.   To  see what's in the current remote directory, you can use the
       program's ls and dir commands.  The former is terse, preferring more remote files in  less
       screen  space, and the latter is more verbose, giving detailed information about each item
       in the directory.

       You can use the program's cd command to move to other directories on  the  remote  system.
       The  cd command behaves very much like the command of the same name in the Bourne and Korn

       The purpose of the program is to exchange data with other systems.  You can use	the  pro-
       gram's get command to copy a file from the remote system to your local system:

	    get README.txt

       The  program  will display the progress of the transfer on the screen, so you can tell how
       much needs to be done before the transfer finishes.  When the transfer does  finish,  then
       you can enter more commands to the program's command shell.

       You  can  use the program's put command to copy a file from your system to the remote sys-

	    put something.tar

       When you are finished using the remote system, you can open another one or use the quit

       Before quitting, you may want to save the current FTP session's settings for  later.   You
       can use the bookmark command to save an entry into your $HOME/.ncftp/bookmarks file.  When
       you use the bookmark command, you also specify a bookmark name, so the next  time  instead
       of  opening  the full hostname you can use the name of the bookmark.  A bookmark acts just
       like one for your web browser, so it saves the remote directory you were in,  the  account
       name  you  used,  etc., and other information it learned so that the next time you use the
       bookmark it should require as little effort from you as possible.

       help   The first command to know is help.  If you just type


	      from the command shell, the program prints the names of all of the  supported  com-
	      mands.   From  there, you can get specific help for a command by typing the command
	      after, for example:

		   help open

	      prints information about the open command.

       ascii  This command sets the transfer type to ASCII text.  This is  useful  for	text-only
	      transfers because the concept of text files differs between operating systems.  For
	      example on UNIX, a text file denotes line breaks with the linefeed character, while
	      on  MS-DOS  a  line break is denoted by both a carriage return character and a line
	      feed character.  Therefore, for data transfers that you consider the data  as  text
	      you  can use ascii to ensure that both the remote system and local system translate
	      accordingly.  The default transfer type that ncftp uses is not ASCII, but  straight

       bgget and bgput
	      These  commands correspond to the get and put commands explained below, except that
	      they do the job in the background.  Normally when you do a  get  then  the  program
	      does  the  download immediately, and does not return control to you until the down-
	      load completes.  The background transfers are nice because you can continue  brows-
	      ing the remote filesystem and even open other systems.  In fact, they are done by a
	      daemon process, so even if you log off your UNIX host the daemon	should	still  do
	      your transfers.  The daemon will also automatically continue to retry the transfers
	      until they finish.  To tell when background jobs have finished, you have to examine
	      the $HOME/.ncftp/spool/log file, or run the jobs command from within NcFTP.

	      Both  the  bgget and bgput commands allow you to schedule when to do the transfers.
	      They take a ``-@'' parameter, whose argument is a date of the  form  YYYYMMDDhhmmss
	      (four  digit  year,  month, day, hour, minute, second).  For example, to schedule a
	      download at 3 AM on November 6, you could try:

		   bgget -@ 19971106030000 /pub/idstuff/quake/q2_100.zip

	      This command tells ncftp to  immediately	start  the  background	transfers  you've
	      requested,  which simply runs a copy of the ncftpbatch program which is responsible
	      for the background jobs.	Normally the program will start  the  background  job  as
	      soon as you close the current site, open a new site, or quit the program.  The rea-
	      son for this is because since so many users still use slow dialup links that start-
	      ing  the	transfers would slow things to a crawl, making it difficult to browse the
	      remote system.  An added bonus of starting the background job when  you  close  the
	      site  is	that  ncftp  can pass off that open connection to the ncftpbatch program.
	      That is nice when the site is always busy, so that the background job doesn't  have
	      to wait and get re-logged on to do its job.

       binary Sets  the  transfer  type to raw binary, so that no translation is done on the data
	      transferred.  This is the default anyway, since most files are in binary.

	      Saves the current session settings for later use.   This	is  useful  to	save  the
	      remote system and remote working directory so you can quickly resume where you left
	      off some other time.  The bookmark data is stored  in  your  $HOME/.ncftp/bookmarks

	      Lists  the contents of your $HOME/.ncftp/bookmarks file in a human-readable format.
	      You can use this command to recall the bookmark name of a  previously  saved  book-
	      mark, so that you can use the open command with it.

       cat    Acts like the ``/bin/cat'' UNIX command, only for remote files.  This downloads the
	      file you specify and dumps it directly to the screen.  You will probably	find  the
	      page  command  more  useful, since that lets you view the file one screen at a time
	      instead of printing the entire file at once.

       cd     Changes the working directory on the remote host.  Use this command to move to dif-
	      ferent  areas on the remote server.  If you just opened a new site, you might be in
	      the    root    directory.     Perhaps    there	was    a     directory	   called
	      ``/pub/news/comp.sources.d'' that someone told you about.  From the root directory,
	      you could:

		   cd pub
		   cd news
		   cd comp.sources.d

	      or, more concisely,

		   cd /pub/news/comp.sources.d

	      Then, commands such as get, put, and ls could be used to refer  to  items  in  that

	      Some  shells  in	the UNIX environment have a feature I like, which is switching to
	      the previous directory.  Like those shells, you can do:

		   cd -

	      to change to the last directory you were in.

       chmod  Acts like the ``/bin/chmod'' UNIX command, only for remote files.  However, this is
	      not a standard command, so remote FTP servers may not support it.

       close  Disconnects  you	from  the remote server.  The program does this for you automati-
	      cally when needed, so you can simply open other sites or quit the  program  without
	      worrying about closing the connection by hand.

       debug  This command is mostly for internal testing.  You could type

		   debug 1

	      to turn debugging mode on.  Then you could see all messages between the program and
	      the remote server, and things that are only printed in  debugging  mode.	 However,
	      this information is also available in the $HOME/.ncftp/trace file, which is created
	      each time you run ncftp.	If you need to report a bug, send a  trace  file  if  you

       dir    Prints a detailed directory listing.  It tries to behave like UNIX's ``/bin/ls -l''
	      command.	If the remote server seems to be a UNIX host, you can also use	the  same
	      flags you would with ls, for instance

		   dir -rt

	      would try to act like

		   /bin/ls -lrt

	      would on UNIX.

       get    Copies  files  from  the	current  working  directory  on  the  remote host to your
	      machine's  current  working  directory.	To  place  a  copy  of	 ``README''   and
	      ``README.too'' in your local directory, you could try:

		   get README README.too

	      You could also accomplish that by using a wildcard expression, such as:

		   get README*

	      This  command  is  similar to the behavior of other FTP programs' mget command.  To
	      retrieve a remote file but give it a different name on your host, you can  use  the
	      ``-z''  flag.  This example shows how to download a file called ReadMe.txt but name
	      it locally as README:

		   get -z ReadMe.txt README

	      The program tries to ``resume'' downloads by  default.   This  means  that  if  the
	      remote  FTP server lost the connection and was only able to send 490 kilobytes of a
	      500 kilobyte file, you could reconnect to the FTP server and do another get on  the
	      same  file  name	and it would get the last 10 kilobytes, instead of retrieving the
	      entire file again.  There are some occasions where you may not want that	behavior.
	      To turn it off you can use the ``-f'' flag.

	      There are also times where you want to append to an existing file.  You can do this
	      by using the ``-A'' flag, for example

		   get -A log.11

	      would append to a file named ``log.11'' if it existed locally.

	      Another thing you can do is delete a remote file after you download it.	This  can
	      be  useful  when	a  remote  host  expects  a  file  to be removed when it has been
	      retrieved.  Use the double-D flag, such as ``get -DD'' to do this.

	      The get command lets you retrieve entire directory trees, too.  Although it may not
	      work  with some remote systems, you can try ``get -R'' with a directory to download
	      the directory and its contents.

       jobs   Views the list of currently executing NcFTP background tasks.  This  actually  just
	      runs ncftpbatch -l for you.

       lcd    The lcd command is the first of a few ``l'' commands that work with the local host.
	      This changes the current working directory on the local host.  If you want to down-
	      load  files  into  a different local directory, you could use lcd to change to that
	      directory and then do your downloads.

       lchmod Runs ``/bin/chmod'' on the local host.

       lls    Another local  command  that  comes  in  handy  is  the  lls  command,  which  runs
	      ``/bin/ls''  on  the  local  host and displays the results in the program's window.
	      You can use the same flags with lls as you would in your command shell, so you  can
	      do things like:

		   lcd ~/doc
		   lls -lrt p*.txt

       lmkdir Runs ``/bin/mkdir'' on the local host.

       lookup The  program  also has a built-in interface to the name service via the lookup com-
	      mand.  This means you can lookup entries for remote hosts, like:

		   lookup cse.unl.edu ftp.cs.unl.edu sphygmomanometer.unl.edu



	      There is also a more detailed option, enabled with ``-v,'' i.e.:

		   lookup -v cse.unl.edu ftp.cs.unl.edu


		       Name:	 cse.unl.edu

		       Name:	 typhoon.unl.edu
		       Alias:	 ftp.cs.unl.edu

	      You can also give IP addresses, so this would work too:




       lpage  Views a local file one page at a time, with your preferred $PAGER program.

       lpwd   Prints the current local directory.  Use this command when you forget where you are
	      on your local machine.

	      Runs ``/bin/mv'' on the local host.

       lrm    Runs ``/bin/rm'' on the local host.

       lrmdir Runs ``/bin/rmdir'' on the local host.

       ls     Prints  a directory listing from the remote system.  It tries to behave like UNIX's
	      ``/bin/ls -CF'' command.	If the remote server seems to be a  UNIX  host,  you  can
	      also use the same flags you would with ls, for instance

		   ls -rt

	      would try to act like

		   /bin/ls -CFrt

	      would on UNIX.

	      ncftp has a powerful built-in system for dealing with directory listings.  It tries
	      to cache each one, so if you list the same directory,  odds  are	it  will  display
	      instantly.   Behind  the scenes, ncftp always tries a long listing, and then refor-
	      mats it as it needs to.  So even if your first listing of a directory was a regular
	      ``ls'' which displayed the files in columns, your next listing could be ``ls -lrt''
	      and ncftp would still use the cached  directory  listing	to  quickly  display  the
	      information for you!

       mkdir  Creates  a  new  directory on the remote host.  For many public archives, you won't
	      have the proper access permissions to do that.

       open   Establishes an FTP control connection to a remote host.  By default, ncftp logs  in
	      anonymously  to  the remote host.  You may want to use a specific user account when
	      you log in, so you can use the ``-u'' flag to specify  which  user.   This  example
	      shows how to open the host ``bowser.nintendo.co.jp'' using the username ``mario:''

		   open -u mario bowser.nintendo.co.jp

	      Here is a list of options available for use with the open command:

	      -u XX Use username XX instead of anonymous.

	      -p XX Use password XX with the username.

	      -j XX Use account XX in supplement to the username and password (deprecated).

	      -P XX Use port number XX instead of the default FTP service port (21).

       page   Browses  a remote file one page at a time, using your $PAGER program.  This is use-
	      ful for reading README's on the remote host without downloading them first.

       pdir and pls
	      These commands are equivalent to dir and ls respectively, only they feed their out-
	      put  to your pager.  These commands are useful if the directory listing scrolls off
	      your screen.

       put    Copies files from the local host to the remote machine's current working directory.
	      To  place  a  copy  of ``xx.zip'' and ``yy.zip'' in the remote directory, you could

		   put xx.zip yy.zip

	      You could also accomplish that by using a wildcard expression, such as:

		   put *.zip

	      This command is similar to the behavior of other FTP programs'  mput  command.   To
	      send  a  remote  file  but  give	it a different name on your host, you can use the
	      ``-z''   flag.	This   example	 shows	 how   to   upload    a    file    called
	      ``ncftpd-2.0.6.tar.gz'' but name it remotely as ``NFTPD206.TGZ:''

		   put -z ncftpd-2.0.6.tar.gz NFTPD206.TGZ

	      The  program  does  not  try  to	``resume'' uploads by default.	If you do want to
	      resume an upload, use the ``-z'' flag.

	      There are also times where you want to append to an existing remote file.  You  can
	      do this by using the ``-A'' flag, for example

		   put -A log11.txt

	      would append to a file named ``log11.txt'' if it existed on the remote server.

	      Another  thing you can do is delete a local file after you upload it.  Use the dou-
	      ble-D flag, such as ``put -DD'' to do this.

	      The put command lets you send entire directory trees, too.  It should work  on  all
	      remote  systems, so you can try ``put -R'' with a directory to upload the directory
	      and its contents.

       pwd    Prints the current remote working directory.  A portion of  the  pathname  is  also
	      displayed in the shell's prompt.

       quit   Of  course,  when  you  finish using the program, type quit to end the program (You
	      could also use bye, exit, or ^D).

       quote  This can be used to send a direct FTP Protocol command to the remote server.   Gen-
	      erally this isn't too useful to the average user.

       rename If  you  need  to change the name of a remote file, you can use the rename command,

		   rename SPHYGMTR.TAR sphygmomanometer-2.3.1.tar

       rhelp  Sends a help request to the remote server.  The list of FTP  Protocol  commands  is
	      often  printed,  and sometimes some other information that is actually useful, like
	      how to reach the site administrator.

	      Depending on the remote server, you may be able to give a parameter to  the  server
	      also, like:

		   rhelp NLST

	      One server responded:

		   Syntax: NLST [ <sp> path-name ]

       rm     If  you  need to delete a remote file you can try the rm command.  Much of the time
	      this won't work because you won't have the proper access permissions.  This command
	      doesn't  accept  any  flags,  so you can't nuke a whole tree by using ``-rf'' flags
	      like you can on UNIX.

       rmdir  Similarly, the rmdir command removes a directory.  Depending on the remote  server,
	      you may be able to remove a non-empty directory, so be careful.

       set    This lets you configure some program variables, which are saved between runs in the
	      $HOME/.ncftp/prefs file.	The basic syntax is:

		   set <option> <value>

	      For example, to change the value you use for the anonymous password, you might do:

		   set anon-password ncftp@ncftp.com

	      See the next section for a list of things you change.

       show   This lets you display program variables.	You can do ``show all'' to display all of
	      them, or give a variable name to just display that one, such as:

		   show anon-password

       site   One  obscure  command you may have to use someday is site.  The FTP Protocol allows
	      for ``site specific'' commands.  These ``site'' commands vary of course, such as:

		   site chmod 644 README

	      Actually, ncftp's chmod command really does the above.

	      Try doing one of these to see what the remote server supports, if any:

		   rhelp SITE
		   site help

       type   You may need to change transfer types during the course of a session with a server.
	      You can use the type command to do this.	Try one of these:

		   type ascii
		   type binary
		   type image

	      The ascii command is equivalent to ``type a'', and the binary command is equivalent
	      to ``type i'' and ``type b''.

       umask  Sets the process' umask on the remote server, if it has any  concept  of	a  umask,

		   umask 077

	      However, this is not a standard command, so remote FTP servers may not support it.

	      This command dumps some information about the particular edition of the program you
	      are using, and how it was installed on your system.

	      Specifies what to use for the password when logging in anonymously.  Internet  con-
	      vention  has  been to use your E-mail address as a courtesy to the site administra-
	      tor.  If you change this, be aware that some sites require (i.e.	they  check  for)
	      valid E-mail addresses.

	      NcFTP  3	now  prompts  the  user  by  default when you try to download a file that
	      already exists locally, or upload a file that already exists remotely.  Older  ver-
	      sions  of  the program automatically guessed whether to overwrite the existing file
	      or attempt to resume where it left off,  but  sometimes  the  program  would  guess
	      wrong.  If you would prefer that the program always guess which action to take, set
	      this variable to yes, otherwise, leave it set to no and the program will prompt you
	      for which action to take.

	      With  the advent of version 3 of NcFTP, the program treats bookmarks more like they
	      would with your web browser, which means that  once  you	bookmark  the  site,  the
	      remote directory is static.  If you set this variable to yes, then the program will
	      automatically update the bookmark's starting remote directory  with  the	directory
	      you  were  in  when  you closed the site.  This behavior would be more like that of
	      NcFTP version 2.

	      By default the program will ask you when a site you haven't bookmarked is about  to
	      be closed.  To turn this prompt off, you can set this variable to no.

	      Previous	versions  of the program used a single timeout value for everything.  You
	      can now have different values for different operations.  However, you  probably  do
	      not need to change these from the defaults unless you have special requirements.

	      The  connect-timeout  variable controls how long to wait, in seconds, for a connec-
	      tion establishment to complete before considering it hopeless.  You can  choose  to
	      not use a timeout at all by setting this to -1.

	      This  is the timer used when ncftp sends an FTP command over the control connection
	      to the remote server.  If the server hasn't replied in that many seconds,  it  con-
	      siders the session lost.

	      This  is	controls  how  large  the transfer log ($HOME/.ncftp/log) can grow to, in
	      kilobytes.  The default is 200, for 200kB; if you don't want a log, set this to 0.

       pager  This is the external program to use to view a text file, and is more by default.

	      This controls ncftp's behavior for data connections, and can be set to one  of  on,
	      off, or the default, optional.  When passive mode is on, ncftp uses the FTP command
	      primitive PASV to have the client establish data connections to  the  server.   The
	      default  FTP  protocol  behavior is to use the FTP command primitive PORT which has
	      the server establish data connections to the client.  The default setting for  this
	      variable, optional, allows ncftp to choose whichever method it deems necessary.

	      You  can change how the program reports file transfer status.  Select from meter 2,
	      1, or 0.

	      When a host is busy or unavailable, the program waits this number of seconds before
	      trying  again.   The  smallest  you can set this is to 10 seconds -- so if you were
	      planning on being inconsiderate, think again.

	      If you set this variable to yes, the program will save  passwords  along	with  the
	      bookmarks  you  save.   While this makes non-anonymous logins more convenient, this
	      can be very dangerous  since  your  account  information	is  now  sitting  in  the
	      $HOME/.ncftp/bookmarks  file.   The passwords aren't in clear text, but it is still
	      trivial to decode them if someone wants to make a modest effort.

	      If your operating system supports TCP Large Windows, you can try setting this vari-
	      able  to the number of bytes to set the TCP/IP socket buffer to.	This option won't
	      be of much use unless the remote server also supports large  window  sizes  and  is
	      pre-configured with them enabled.

	      This  timer  controls how long to wait for data blocks to complete.  Don't set this
	      too low or else your transfers will timeout without completing.

       You may find that your network administrator has placed a firewall  between  your  machine
       and the Internet, and that you cannot reach external hosts.

       The  answer  may  be as simple as setting ncftp to use passive mode only, which you can do
       from a ncftp command prompt like this:

	    set passive on

       The reason for this is because many firewalls do not allow  incoming  connections  to  the
       site,  but do allow users to establish outgoing connections.  A passive data connection is
       established by the client to the server, whereas the default is for the server  to  estab-
       lish  the connection to the client, which firewalls may object to.  Of course, you now may
       have problems with sites whose primitive FTP servers do not support passive mode.

       Otherwise, if you know you need to have ncftp communicate  directly  with  a  firewall  or
       proxy,  you  can  try editing the separate $HOME/.ncftp/firewall configuration file.  This
       file is created automatically the first time you run the program,  and  contains  all  the
       information you need to get the program to work in this setup.

       The  basics  of this process are configuring a firewall (proxy) host to go through, a user
       account and password for authentication on the firewall, and which type of firewall method
       to use.	You can also setup an exclusion list, so that ncftp does not use the firewall for
       hosts on the local network.

       PAGER  Program to use to view text files one page at a time.

       TERM   If the program was compiled with support for GNU Readline it will need to know  how
	      to manipulate the terminal correctly for line-editing, etc.  The pager program will
	      also take advantage of this setting.

       HOME   By default, the program writes its configuration data in a .ncftp  subdirectory  of
	      the HOME directory.

	      If set, the program will use this directory instead of $HOME/.ncftp.  This variable
	      is optional except for those users whose home directory is the root directory.

	      Both the built-in ls command and the external ls command need this to determine how
	      many screen columns the terminal has.

       There are no such sites named bowser.nintendo.co.jp or sphygmomanometer.unl.edu.

       Auto-resume  should check the file timestamps instead of relying upon just the file sizes,
       but it is difficult to do this reliably within FTP.

       Directory caching and recursive downloads depend on UNIX-like behavior of the remote host.
