Yes it supports both FTP and VSFTP. See here
Yes, IIRC. I believe it can be used for FTP, though I'm not 100% sure. What I suspect it's talking about, though, is Samba shares. (It may also be able to do sshfs but I'm not sure.) All the magic happens through GVFS (or whatever the MATE guys called the GNOME 2 equivalent, GVS, when they forked it).
computer:/// is a special location that the GVFS daemon responds to. For more information on what GVFS is, see What is gvfs and why should I want it on my system?, but suffice it to say that it's a wrapper over the raw POSIX calls for reading, listing, and writing files, and it provides some nice abstractions. Visiting computer:/// will work in any ...

Terminal Method Usually when copying files that I think I'll need to pause/resume I'll go to the terminal and use the rsync command instead. $ rsync -avz <source> <destination> This can be paused/resumed in the sense that you can simply stop it, and restart the command later on. Only the files that haven't been copied as of yet, will get ...
Here is my solution for playing all files in a directory and all subdirectories with mplayer2 and ranger in random order. It's is not exactly the answer to the question, but maybe you can expand it. First I wrote a shell script called ptv: #!/bin/sh if [[ -z "$1" ]]; then echo "usage: $(basename $0) directory [count]" else if [[ ! -z "$2" ]]; then ...
