Does anyone know of an ftp client (or web browser), which allows me to specify (or assign) a network interface explicitly (like eth1 for example) during usage? Something for Linux would be good.

  • You want to control which interface your ftp traffic goes out? – Etan Reisner Aug 16 '13 at 22:33

The wget command provides the --bind-address parameter and curl provides --interface, perhaps these will do what you want.

  • There is a tool called wput that is the opposite of wget, allowing for upload of files - the other half of FTP, though I've never used that tool. – Paul Aug 17 '13 at 16:01
