    Those of you that use FTP software, please write down your favourite and reasons why!! I need a good FTP program! Freeware or shareware will do.

    smartftp is a good free one. www.smartftp.com

    I use cuteftp pro, due to the good SSH implementation. (but its expensive).

    I have been experimenting with WSFTP PRO 8.0 and its not bad, but the interface is a little cheap looking i think. Cute FTP is something I have never tried, I'll download the shareware version tonight and test. Thanks chaps!

    I agree, I also dont like the interface of WSFTP, Cute pro is by far the best. ive tried almost every FTP client out there over the years.

    Hey Tek.. do you know a way of exporting your servers out to a text file or something similar so one can use it with other FTP clients?

    I just started using SmartFTP a few weeks ago. I like it and it does the job just fine.

    You can export your server list and import it to another installation of FlashFXP. But you cant export the list and import it into a different FTP client, because different FTP clients have different codes of txt to save servers.

    FlashFXP is a nice program, because it easely allows you to transfer files between servers if those servers have fxp enabled ofcourse and the user interface is very nice and easy.
