    Can anyone reccomend a simple ftp program that they use/find good that is also easy to use.

    Freeware but not with sypware/adware would be nice.

    FileZilla ofcourse
    its opensource, and hence free

    it might be filezilla.sourceforge.net

    but give it a google if its not#

    Hi All

    Well not really free as you have paid for your Windows Operating system!

    Get the command line up and type ftp and there you go! :rolleyes:

    I use WS_FTP Nugget. I don't know if that link gives you a full working version, but I know as Phoenix says, a quick Google will find it.

    Another vote for SmartFTP from me. Used quite a few in my time and, as far as free ftp apps go, SmartFTP is my favourite.

    Cheers,
    Derek.

    I'm sort of with Sandy - Internet Explorer. Drag and drop your files from Windows Explorer.

    Thanks for the advice.

    I've checked out filezilla and also smart ftp. The thing that struck me as funny is they look very similar.
