LFTP is a sophisticated file transfer program for the FTP and HTTP protocols. Like bash, it has job control and uses the readline library for input. It has bookmarks, built-in mirroring, and can transfer several files in parallel. It is designed with reliability in mind.
As a side effect of changing the underlying cryptographic library from OpenSSL to GnuTLS in the past, starting with lftp-3.7.11-4.el5_5.3, some previously offered TLS ciphers were dropped. In handshake, lftp does not offer these previously available ciphers:
lftp still offers variety of other TLS ciphers:
For servers without support for any of these ciphers, it is now possible to force SSLv3 connection instead of TLS using the
set ftp:ssl-auth SSL
configuration directive. This works both for implicit and explicit FTPS. (BZ#532099
