  • Good free ftp client?

    I've been using SmartFTP for a long time, but at some point they smoothly transitioned from totally free to "screw you buddy, no freebies here". So now I am back on the hunt for a good and free ftp client. It doesn't need lots of features, but queued transfers and in-place file editing would be cool.

    I use FileZilla. It is solid an free. It allows me to work on several servers and i have no issues with it. There are better ones (maybe not free), but FileZilla works fine for most of your needs.
    And yes you can edit things on the server from the window like names and attributes. Is also has the queued file transfer you are looking for.

      I use FileZilla too. It's works just fine and has all the features like the commercial FTP programs.

      - It's who you game with.

              Another vote for FileZilla. Use it both at work and at home and love it.

                Also use FileZilla for my website management. Previously used AceFTP Freeware (also very nice for free). But I find FileZilla is less hassle on me, my system, and speedier.

                  I've been using FileZilla ever since Apo recommended it, and I'm pleased with it. Not being an advanced user, it seems the same as CuteFTP and SmartFTP in terms of features that I use.

                    Console based FTP!

                    Actually windows Network Place works pretty good for simple file copy stuff. Just go into your "My Network Places" and add a new location using the wizard. Doesn't work in all cases but pretty handy for the simple stuff.

                    I've used a lot of ftp clients and I'd have to say Filezilla is the best free tool I've come across. I actually prefer it over my copy of WS_FTP Pro too.

                        Got Filezilla and tried it out a bit. Ugly interface, but it does the job. ;)

                        Thanks all.

                          Resurrection.

                          The FireFTP plugin for Firefox is fantastic. It has ALL of the main features you could desire. It lacks only the more advanced features like multiple threads and scheduled/queued downloads.

                          Just wanted to share.

                              im still using smart ftp. it has that nag screen at the start. but since it is still considered free for edu use, i continue to use it.
