Fugu Secure FTP

Current Version - 1.2.0

Fugu is a graphical frontend to the commandline Secure File Transfer application (SFTP). SFTP (secure file transfer protocol) is similar to FTP (file transfer protocol), but unlike FTP, the entire session is encrypted, meaning nothing, including passwords, are sent in cleartext form, and is thus much less vulnerable to third-party interception.

Fugu allows you to take advantage of SFTP's security without having to sacrifice the ease of use found in a graphical user interface (GUI).

Fugu also includes support for SCP (secure copy) file transfers and the ability to create secure tunnels via SSH (Secure Shell).
