Uploading .dot files how? (2 posts)

After setting the required configuration options, I can display and download files beginning with a dot (.htaccess for example) just fine.
But how can I *upload* these files? The "Put File" box doesn't show them, and neither does the Finder (therefore no drag-and-drop).
[By the way, I think I tried all other free and non-free ftp clients for OS X. Fetch is not the prettiest, but it doesn't crash, is fast and it's easy to use. I want to replace the terminal ftp with something more convenient.]

Mac OS X makes it difficult to see files with names starting with a dot. One workaround is to upload them under a different name and then rename them on the server. Another is to change the Finder setting that keeps them hidden; you can do that with a tool like TinkerTool (available at http://www.bresink.de/osx/TinkerTool2.html ).
