    There's FireFTP, that works within Firefox... or you could open up a Terminal session and type "ftp"... ;)

    Any reason you don't like Cyberduck? I used to use it until I found Transmit. imho, Transmit is worth the money.

    Personally I prefer ncftp to any of the GUI-based ftp clients.

    That would be my opinion, also. It's also better than some of the applications for sale.

    Of course, using FTP at the shell prompt is a way to remind everyone just how fast and flexible it is and how convenient Cyberduck is.

    And using Cyberduck on a mac is a way to remind me just how fast and flexible Filezilla is on the PC.

    Not to mention the joy that is FlashFXP, although that is a pay for application.

    Um... how about "they have"? Sort of, anyway.

    Just open up the "Connect to server" dialogue (command-K or use the "Go" menu), type in an ftp server, and hit return. Bingo, mounted FTP volume that looks just like any network disk.

    I believe it's read-only and it doesn't support sending commands, but then if you're savvy enough to be doing a lot with FTP there's always the terminal.

    Me, I use Interarchy, but that's not free. Generally I just use the terminal if I'm on a Mac that's not mine, but I've used Fugu when a free GUI was necessary.

    That's nice and all but it doesn't help the OP at all.

    Well Cyberduck keeps on saying "There are too many connections from this IP"
    or something like that yet when I run Transmit it lets me connect

    Transmit also has this awesome feature called Mirror

    The only other free FTP client I've ever used was Fugu....and ultimately I switched back to Cyberduck. Sadly, I think Cyberduck really is the best of the freeware FTP clients.

    I don't use Transmit because I don't have a need for it right now, but if Transmit is what works for you, why not buy a copy?

    I found a soluiton

    Download Transmit and then keep it on the mounted disk and every time you want to use it you have to open the .dmg file

    It never regesters on the computer making the trial last forever!!!!!

    But hey if you ever find a faster FTP application tell me
