Trying to think about what ftp clients I used over the years.. quite a few are now no longer freeware
I used visicom's aceFTP (http://software.visi...en/productsfreeware/
) (hated the cheesy sounds it makes but the tool is competent enough) and I have also used ftp commander (http://www.internet-soft.com/ftpcomm.htm
) and coreftp (http://www.coreftp.com/
) , and those two are still freeware. Or more precisely a freeware version of a shareware pro version. But for many needs they work well. I think my favorite was coreftp (and cuteftp but that is now quite pricey)
Nowadays i don't use much ftp, it's all scp/sftp (for which i use penguinet -paid for- and tunnelier -when on someone else's machine-) so when i need ftp i just use what comes with my file manager.
No tool I found for sftp/scp offers full directory comparison, so I am stuck using rsync. I wish one did. I noticed when getting the urls for those tools that many of them now do scp/sftp so i might have a peek at them again
PS: If you ever need to let someone non technical to upload/download a few files regularly from their windows machine, data freeway is quite cool, since it creates a folder within the normal windows interface for the target. That's not very special for ftp but this is one of the only dummy proof scp/sftp tools I know of (http://fileforum.bet...Freeway/1107503093/1
