As the FTP protocol is not very feature rich, this filesystem does not fulfill every constraint of a real filesystem, but it should be usable for simple tasks like copying and editing files.
CurlFtpFS differentiates itself from other FTP filesystems because it features:
* SSLv3 and TLSv1 support
* connecting through tunneling HTTP proxies
* automatically reconnection if the server times out
* transform absolute symlinks to point back into the ftp file system
Instructions for using CurlFtpFS on Haiku are available in /system/documentation/packages/curlftpfs/readme.txt.
