    I tried searching for this here in the Lounge but did not get any hits (it is possible that I am not doing that right). Does anyone have recommendations for a "free" FTP software application. I googled this and got loads of hits but thought I would ask for your input.

    Thanks,

    There are a couple that spring to mind. If you use Firefox, the FireFTP Add-on is a full featured FTP add-on that integrates an FTP client with Firefox. For a standalone application, I have used FileZilla and found that to be quite easy to use with a comprehensive range of features.

    I second the opinion on FileZilla - The free FTP solution.

    Yep, I agree, Filezilla is the way to go. Some text editors like Notepad++ have some FTP functionality built in, but I've found that somewhat limited (when I tried it, it did annoying things like only transferring half a file).

    If at first you do succeed, you&#39;ve probably missed something.

    I have been using WinSCP for some time and it does everything I need.

    When I used to do FTP using BATch files, I was quite happy with the Microsoft (command-line) FTP built into Windows -- and therefore Free...

    Hi Tony,

    Thanks for the suggestions. I like FireFox so I went ahead and installed that add-on. Works like a charm.

    The only hassles I've ever had with Filezilla were things that my behaviour compounded.

    I used to ignore the warnings to update. And then I found that I wasn't uploading complete files. For some reason, it would just stop loading and my files only contained half of the data.

    Updated to the latest version and problem solved. And now I keep updating whenever it recommends me to do so.

    But they have been updating a bit lately and I find it a bit frustrating that I have finished getting my files ready and the last step in the day is to upload the files (before I retire to the patio with a galss of wine). And it wants to update !!! I know the delay is only a few minutes, but I'd rather that I be given the option to finish my task and then update.

    I've been using Core FTP lite for several years now.
    I'm using version 1.3c to maintain about 8 different domains.
