    I need a good FTP program for my Macbook.

    Can anybody point me to one please?

    TIA.

    Cyberduck.

    The 2.6.1 update should have gotten rid of most of the bugs that made me spend $25 on a Transmit license... :)

    I believe fetch is only free for education customers?

    Cyberduck
    OneButton FTP
    RBrowser
    Secure FTP

    I used OneButton FTP, Secure FTP looks like a better program. You can also use finder as a FTP Clint I will decribe how to...
    I don't think you need to start FTP access in the system preferences. From the desk top hold down the command key (the one with the apple on it) and press <k> or goto the Go menu and select connect to server. With that open you now type ftp://YourServer.com and then it mounts and looks like your HD. I think that's it

    It is probably one of the best third-party "small" software outfits around, in my opinion. I loves me some Transmit - I use it all day long. :)

    Yes, fetch is absolutely 100% free for students and educational customers. I use it daily.

    I'll also put a good word in for transmit. It really is great.
