Can anyone recommend a free FTP client? SmartFTP is now charging, and I used to use it quite a bit. Thanks in advance.

Thanks, I'll look into FileZilla. I actually just started using FireFTP with Firefox, and it seems to be working seamlessly.

yeah freeftp is okay too but for me filezilla is still my best option.. and just the download the portable file from the site on my post. cause using the portable edition you can actually make multiple connection not like with the original filezilla that you can't make multiple connection.. just try it out dude and you won't regret in using that..

I was just going to suggest FileZilla, I use it, but I also use a really simple one called FreeFTP 3.2 by Brandyware Software. Both are free. Good luck.

Thank you! I'll check out FreeFTP. Is it a lot lighter than FileZilla?

Yeh, real fast to load and connect, less complicated and really simple to use, Im switching it on and off all day, its very light. Also when you have entered your settings ie username, password, it automatically remembers them. If you have more that one site to upload then it isnt ideal because you would have to enter the appropriate details each time, where FileZilla allows you to save different settings for different sites.

Try FireFTP, Its a free ftp client add-on for firefox. I haven't used it before but my friend who does work for his dad's company's websites uses it and says it good. Here's a link www.fireftp.mozdev.org
