Free Mac FTP Software

Does anyone know of any free FTP clients for Mac OSX? Or can you FTP using something in the OS? If so, could someone tell me how to do so? Thanks.
You can FTP using finder + terminal I believe, but I'm not sure. I'd recommend Fetch (free for students) or Cyberduck. Both have worked well for me.
have heard about Transmit. dont know if its paid or not Confused
If you use Firefox, all the extensions are platform-independent. Why not have a look at FireFTP - it's an excellent, fully featured FTP client and it's totally free. It's also only a 90Kb download! The drawback is that you need Firefox, but that's only a drawback if you don't use it already.

Anyway, hope this helps! Very Happy

I use Rbrowser, found at It is a very simple FTp program, and if you only use it for FTP it's free.

Cyberduck is the best free FTP client that I've tried so far. It's also pretty easy to use.

@ srijit, Transmit is commercial-ware.
I use this ftp software---AbleFtp
But it need to pay!


Simple User Interface helps you transfer files interactively, but the Goal is to get you to create advanced ftp tasks that can be scheduled to automatically or to run manually.

Automate FTP to/from an intranet or internet server. Schedule ftp of files between your PC and the server; and automatically rename the files based on current month, day or time if needed. Ftp supports wildcards (*). Transfer multiple files at once. Supports subdirectory transfers.

Remote Ftp directory monitor can detect directory change and trigger ftp , zip, copy, delete tasks. It can also detect file size, total files, file modification dates and then trigger other tasks, if required.

Ftp Command task can run RFC ftp commands in sequence.

Scheduler software is very easy to use, yet has very powerful scheduling, tasking and automation capabilities.

Email Notification of task failure, based on task exit code.

Local directory monitor works similar to the Remote Ftp directory monitor.

Zip files and directories using wildcards on a schedule. Can append date/time to filename for archive purposes.

Copy files and directories using wildcards on a schedule. Can append date/time to filename for archive purposes.

Delete files on schedule, based on wildcards.

AbleFtp is a FTP client that lets you Automate download and upload files on a schedule. Free download.
