    Anyone know of any good, free FTP clients. I'm using captain FTP for the time being, until my trial runs out. I've been looking around a bit and i've found nothing helpful =/.

    Anyone got any suggestions?

    Try out cyberduck. I'm using it for the time being. It's a little buggy though, and every-time they seem to fix one bug with an update they create another one.

    I'd try out the demo of transmit aswell. I think it's about $25.

    Fetch has a 15-day trial ($25 to buy). Very clean app. I've been using it since it came out (way before OS-9). Supports SFTP, and more.

    Cyberduck doesn't even let me connect at all in the first place and is too buggy.

    Thanks,

    Fugu doesn't connect either. There is no place to put in my password.

    Thanks,

    I update several websites using Cyberduck and have never had a problem. Great free app.

    Used to use Fetch. Updated my OS and didn't want to pay again so been using Cyberduck for a couple of years. Never a problem. I'm surprised to read the above comments about it being buggy. The widget is useful, too.

    But are there any clients where you can limit your upload/download speed? If I'm uploading to archive.org, generally over 1GB, my internet connection is saturated by using all my available upload speed. I'd really like a way to limit the speed so I don't have to restrict uploading to when I'm asleep/away from home.

    If you're a student you might be able to get Fetch. I did through my school for free and I like it.

    rbrowser is awsome. Even without a license in free mode. Frose the first time but worked the second time.

    But one thing that doesn't work. If I goto get info and say check all 7 7 7 permissions for a folder and say inlcude everything inside. It won't let me. It keeps going back to 7 5 5. It won't let me do all 7s. I want to give read and write to everything. I know that's bad but I don't have time to figureout which is which so I need all 7 7 7.

    It won't let me.

    Thanks,
    ivnj
