    Filezilla is the best, in my opinion. The fact that it's free is just a bonus.

    Not Dreamweaver's built-in FTP.
    It is sooo slooow to upload.

    A normal FTP program is quicker.

    Stick this on a USB-stick:


    Now you can download Core FTP LE - free Windows software that includes the client FTP features you need. Features like SFTP (SSH), SSL, TLS, IDN, browser integration, site to site transfers, FTP transfer resume, drag and drop support, file viewing & editing, firewall support, custom commands, FTP URL parsing, command line transfers, filters, and much, much more!

    I've tried several, and so far the easiest has been CuteFTP Lite - it's their cheapest version. Less than $20 as I recall.

    Their higher priced ones are geared toward website development teams in which multiple designers are working on the same site. Cute's cheap one is for the single user who needs an easy, quick way to upload.

    I use CuteFTP Pro. Its nice but one feature that is missing in most softwares is the ability to create new files directly on the server. Anyone know any solution to this?

      FileZilla for ordinary FTP, and FlashFXP for its little-known security features and ability to do server-server transfers where allowed. Ever seen a 90MB file move from one server to another in a few seconds? Whoosh!

    Hi I use Filezilla. I think it's quite fast and stable and it is also user friendly. Never had problems with it too. =)

    I've used all three of the products mentioned, and I'm personally a big fan of Filezilla.

    But all three of them are great. I used CuteFTP for a good long while, until I managed to get a copy of WS_FTP Pro, and then that was my hands-down favourite until I grabbed a copy of Filezilla.

      On one of your webpages, make a clickable link to www.yourdomain . com/yourfile.pdf (note, you will need to use the .pdf extension). That should do it.
