FTP uploads with Lynx, impossible?

When browsing an FTP server with Netscape Navigator it is
possible to upload files to the server (access rights permitting).

I looked for the same functionality in Lynx, but could not
find it. Is it simply missing in Lynx?

Yes, it is impossible to upload with lynx. use ftp / ncftp or another ftp client.

OK, my suspicion is confirmed. An issue for the developers
of Lynx to look into!

BTW, I never heard of "nctfp". Is that a Linux utility?

Yes, ncftp is shipped with most distros. Very good ftp client.

From what i have read in the docs about lynx, ftp upload is not a feature that has any priority to get implemented.
