Try SmartFTP:
http://www.smartftp.com/

It's free for home/educational users. If for some reason you don't like that I was going to recommend that you can also check out WS FTP which I've used in the past. Turns out that nowadays you only get 60 days worth of free trial until you are supposed to buy it though. Shame.

I use SmartFTP its great!! Some FTP programs are just a load of crap, SmartFTP also has other que options etc if you want to go away for a couple of hours an leave it uploading some scripts.

Hello guys, recently ive been using for me a good ftp program...

i use the following client..

Net2ftp.com
net2ftp.com is a good web software from php. and i like it. and i found it very fast regard on uploading files. net2ftp.com uses three method of uploading files... via web via java applet via flash

i use always the java applet cause its very fast. you will see when you try net2ftp. and also net2ftp is capable of installing application like wordpress, cms and etc... and also it can extract and compress your files.

i recommend this , and if you want to secure your ftp session you can also have a copy of net2ftp your own domain.

here's the link

I use Core FTP Lite. It's free and does evrything you need.

FTP Commander also has a free edition.

I use fireftp for windows and cyberduck for mac. Smartftp is also really good. Just try them all until you find one you like Very Happy

Yes,smartFTP is realy useful,I like it!

I just tried a sftp client for windows and it was actually pretty good.

It is called WinSCP

You can check it out here: http://winscp.net

I used Windows Commander and now Im using TotalCommander (new name for old software:D) ...
It's the simplest and the best file mannager for windows in my opinion ... I use it insteed of Windows Explorer ...

But If I have to upload some big scripts (lot of small files, like joomla or fckeditor) than I use FileZilla ... nice queue options, and If host is unstable (ftp connection) than the connection will not be terminated and everything will load correctly ...
For example FileZilla works good with frihost, which isn't the most stable ftp server ... (sorry admins:) )

Those two are fine for me, and I don't think that I have to search something else ...

Ah ... maybe web2ftp for those behind a NAT ... (if I remember, Frihost had problems with ppl connected in such way ... because ftp server killed every passive connection and the active one was needed ... web2ftp gives You an active connection ...)

Well, I would suggest SmartFTP but if you're not that great, it's interface needs a little getting sued to. So I suggest FileZilla..

Yup search no further. This is the one FTP client that is most simple, yet can be advance when you want it to be. Furthermore, it packs what you'll need for your file transfer, and is open source.

I have been using it for years. Wink

At the moment i'm using the ftp provided by dream weaver CS... or sometimes when im lazy i just address it to a folder by typing in the ftp address in my documents etc.

Cuteftp is good but all good things come to an end ;( stupid trials >.<!

Core FTP Lite. It is free, easy to use and has just what you need to upload you files.
Chris24

I have the pro version, only because my computer lab teacher gave it out as a award for students who passed the test that was given. I also must mention it is web-development class

For the firefox affecinado.

Try FireFTP. it's a firefox plug in. Easy to find, easy to use. No real complaints about it.
SFMeatwad
I use FileZilla. The latest version. I really like it. Havent had any problems.. Apart from its older version, definitely better for the "drag and drop" option. Can drag it to a directory of choice by view, etc.

http://filezilla.sourceforge.net

I used to use SmartFTP but in my opinion I no longer like it as I fell in love with CuteFTP... it's so much easier and I love it.

I first tried out the trial and when that ran out I bought it for $40 bucks! Smile

Filezilla 3.0 is the best one FTP Client, its got many unique and slick features.

I'll definitely put my vote in for Filezilla too. It's also got a sister-program which lets you set up your own FTP server at home, if you want to - it can be pretty handy. Filezilla is so easy to use, and has a nice simple design.

Another thing I've only recently discovered is how good the FTP part of Dreamweaver is - it makes it really painless to update your site once you've got the account setup - you just click on the file and select 'Put'... no more browsing for the right directory!
