 DESCRIPTION
      gFTP is a file transfer client for *NIX based machines. It currently
      has a text interface and a GTK+ 1.2/2.x graphical interface. It
      currently supports the FTP, FTPS (control connection only), HTTP,
      HTTPS, SSH and FSP protocols.

      connect to when it starts up.

      --help, -h
           Display program usage.

      --info

           the output of this command when submitting a bug report.

      --version, -v
           Display the current version of gFTP.

      proto
           This specifies the protocol that should be used. It can currently
           be one of the following options: ftp, ftps, http, https, ssh,

           address will be used as the password.
