Capivara is a two pane file manager with remote synchronization support using SFTP and FTP. Capivara synchronization adds features like comparing timestamps or SHA-1 hash values and has a preview mode to shos which files are going to be deleted or copied. Because Capivara is Java based and all it requries is a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) it can run on multiple platforms like Linux, Solaris, Unix, Solaris, Mac OSX and windows.
