    Are you talking about GPL FTP programs for Windows? Or Linux?
    I use FileZilla: http://sourceforge.net/projects/filezilla/ on der Windows. On Linux I usually use SCP or rsync, but I occasionally use KBear (http://kbear.sourceforge.net/), but it has some odd quirks.

    I thought I was posting under Windows forum.

    Okay, I will check out filezilla.

    On Linux, I usually use gftp for FTP or even over SSH. I try to avoid plain text logins at all costs.

    Sorry, didn't see the forum topic. I suppose that would have answered my question. I just clicked the thread off the main page. So yeah, check out FileZilla.

    The tutorial at the Filezilla site is very complete, no need to recreate it on this site. Here is a link:

    http://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Using

    Post any issues you might have using it, getting started is up to you..

    Filezilla Client works very nicely on Windows and Linux systems as well. I have it on my OpenSuse machines as well as my Windows XP machine too.

    Agreed, the fact that FileZilla is cross-platform gives it major marks in my book. I have to admit that when I first heard about it I was quite skeptical, since it was based on wxWidgets. Either layout is very difficult or mind-numbingly easy in wxWidgets, because every app I have encountered based on it has had a very sloppy interface. Audacity was based on wxWidgets, but then moved to wxGTK a close cousin. They have cleaned up the interface considerably since they started but I think it still need a bit of work.
