So you can do the recursive thing, and the individual thing, and remain free of typing passwords. On the other hand .netrc is plain text passwords, as is ftp. GNOME sftp client, and sshfs, allow permissions changes to work fine in nautilus. Perhaps it is time for ftp to DIE!
Very probably!However the ncftp I'm using (Debian Lenny) keeps a .ncftp directory and in there are several files, including a 'bookmarks' with passwords encrypted...
