FTP client recommendations


#1

I have been using smartFTP for some time now and it is a pretty good piece of software. Unfortunately, it has recently been giving errors and not connecting to FTP servers at all.

Searching for alternatives presents a huge number of options. Anyone here using a particular FTP client software which he/she thinks is pretty good on features and stability? It would be preferable if it is free. The OS platform is Windows XP SP3.

I don't want to try to "crack" the software. I did with smartFTP and it effed up the history, queues and backups.

flashfxp is quite good but as you mentioned you dont want to crack softwares


#9

I'm using Filezilla and it does the job pretty well. I just hate it that we can't unzip anything via FTP - that would make everything so much easier!

CuteFTP is pretty nice, i've been using it for over 15 days now. supports resuming uploads and multiple http/ftp profiles. ... now only if it were free.
