Besides hash, is there any way to see the progress of cli ftp transfers?

Use a better ftp client?

Try lftp, which is part of FC, or ncftp, which is in Extras.  Both are CLI
clients, and both are much more featureful than plain ftp.  "Batch mode"
clients include wget and curl.  gftp is one GUI client.  You can also FTP
with Firefox or Mozilla, and there are interesting ways to transfer files
in the various file managers (Nautilus in GNOME and whatever it is in
KDE) that I haven't really played with much.  All of them will show
progress bars.


All this is true but sftp is the only one that is secure. I cheat and
watch the size of the oblect in a separate window pointed to the target.

You didn't say sftp in your original post. But lftp does sftp protocol as well as ftp, ftps, http, https, hftp, fish, and file protocols. gftp does sftp as well, IIRC, but I don't have it installed ATM.
