Summary0000688: Consider porting LFTP
DescriptionLFTP is a full-featured command line ftp replacement, more capable than tnftp and ncFTP. This could be the drop-in ftp replacement we seek for ArcaOS.

LFTP includes the following features (some may be missed in this list):

* FTP and HTTP protocols support.
* FTP (e.g. TIS FWTK) proxy support.
* HTTP proxy support.
* FTP over HTTP proxy support (hftp and CONNECT method).
* HTTPS and FTPS protocols support using GNU TLS or OpenSSL library.
* Automatic OPIE/SKEY support in FTP protocol.
* FXP transfers support (between two FTP servers, bypassing client machine).
* FTP listings support: unix-style, NT, EPLF, OS/2, AS400, MacWebStar, MLSD.
* FTP implicit compression (MODE Z) support.
* Automatic reconnect and retry of an operation on retriable errors or timeout.
* IPv6 support in both FTP and HTTP.
* FISH protocol support. It uses ssh with no special program on server side.
* SFTP protocol v3-v6 support.
* HTTP/1.1 keep-alive support.
* HTTP basic and digest authentication.
* Partial WebDAV support.

Paul, do you want bug reports for this attached here or opened separately?


Attempting to utilize the more command attempts to exec /bin/sh and not /@unixroot/usr/bin/sh, leading to unpredictable results (when logged onto a non-%UNIXROOT% volume with no /bin/sh available, I get an error: execl(/bin/sh) failed: No such file or directory).
