scp, the companion tool in most SSH packages, is the tool you
to upload: scp localfile userid at remote.server:/remote/server/directory
to download: scp userid at remote.server:/remote/server/directory localfile
if the remote site has sftp enabled, you can use 'sftp userid at remote.server', then it works like a command line ftp.
cuteFTP pro has support for SFTP. I tried it, it works just like you are
using those ftp GUI.
