I use WS_FTP LE (limited edition), but it's no longer available on the official site, it's been replaced by WS_FTP Home, which costs money... :(

You could try and find it on another site, or you could try leechFTP (http://stud.fh-heilbronn.de/~jdebis/leechftp/downloads.html) , I heard it was pretty good, but I can't really comment on it as I've never used it...

you could also look over here (http://www.download.com/3120-20_4-0.html?titlename=ftp&author=&desc=ftp&qt=&ca=&os=&daysback=&li=49&dlcount=&dlsize=&swlink=false) for free FTP clients.

Hope that's what you were looking for... ;)

I used to use Cute FTP a while back. It worked wonders.

I concur with coupes... WS FTP LE rocks.

You could also get someone to send you WS_FTP LE.

~edit : Yay, I found it... it wasn't very far afterall. PM me if you want me to send it your way.

rightclick -> save as (http://www.oxyonagon.com/Jan/ws_ftple.exe)

Taking it down again in a few days, so yeah.

Sweetness, since you all liked it, decided to download it.

But my first FTP client was CuteFTP, and it was really good for my first one, since I was 12 or so when I first used FTP.

*The wonders of being young and figuring everything out on your own because you didn't know of LF*:)

There's another one, but I can't think of it's name right now...

Yeah, guys, I think by "server software" Dath means software that enables him to run his own FTP server, rather than a client - which is what you are linking to (apart from Sam Dravis).

I run an FTP server from time to time, and I whole heartedly recommend Cerberus FTP. It's simple to use, easily configurable, and very stable. If you want basic functionality, and nothing too fancy, get this.

In terms of clients, if that *is* what you're after, I use Flash FXP, which works a treat - lots of great features, and I can easily do what I need to as a webmaster. Worth trying.

I use WS-FTP Pro. Its quick-simple, and gets the job done.

for servers, i like a couple of them RaidenFTP and GuildFTP. Raiden i know for sure has credits, so you can setup groups/individuals with ratios, and otherwise, both are good. I have a firend who swears by Bulletproof ftp, but i am not familiar with that one.

It was great.
