Accessing FTP Sites

And as if all the other good things in this chapter weren’t enough, Konqueror is also a full-featured File Transfer Protocol (FTP) client that supports file transfers, bookmarks, and drag and drop—all the usual stuff. To see Konqueror’s FTP capabilities, just connect to the Internet, enter an FTP site into the Location field, and press Enter. For a very popular FTP site that hosts a lot of important open source projects, try ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub (Figure 2-22). The FTP site loads, and from this point on acts as if it were a folder on your computer (though it’ll probably be slower to respond if you don’t have a fast Internet connection). Once you’ve connected to an FTP site, you can download a file or folder by simply dragging it to a location in your home directory and selecting Copy Here.
