Dreaming of a better FTP

What I really, really need and want is something that mirrors my local website directory structure on two ftp servers without giving me any BS about losing connection (just retry, dammit) and not reuploading every file each time I kick off a sync and not making me manually sync.

The following FTP Clients are pathetic:

I'm currently evaluating:

    [Update:] Vicomsoft has officially joined the pathetic list:


    • I agree that Fetch is no good; and Transmit looks better but has some problems.

      I have checked out Vicomsofts client and it seems pretty solid. I like that you can be specific about how you want to respond upon an error. I also like that you can set 'default permissions'; I am often uploading items from a Windows Shared Folder, and inevitably the uploaded folder has its permissions set to 700 and is therefore not readable by the webserver ...

      It does lack a feature that I think would be great: the ability to import bookmarks or ideally, just plain use bookmarks from my ~/.netrc file
