Hey I'm just trying to learn... What "complex transfers" are possible in
the ftp command set that are not possible with scp/ssh?
Hey, I agree, use whatever you are more comfortable with I guess. I just
think it makes a lot more sense to just use the basic command set,
perhaps extended with the "s" commands for remote files, rather than set
up sftp and use a different command set. IOW I've never seen the need to
set up sftp and use it over just using the "s" commands...
