    I've done the searches, and most of the previous threads are mine, but my situation is now very desperate.

    I need to connect to my web server, which is now being run in a different place (was run at my house, so I could send files to it directly, not through FTP). Now that it's in a different location, I have to connect via FTP. The server is running Cerberus FTP server software, however I cannot connect with Secure FTP, OneButton FTP or OS X's built in FTP. All the other FTP tools cost money and it's such a simple piece of software, I'm not prepared to pay for it. Windows users CAN connect by the way, I've tried. Don't worry, all my settings are correct too.

    So basically, what other free FTP programs are there?

    Cyberduck also has the cool drag and drop widget.

    I've tried Cyberduck and it didn't do well for what I needed. I use Transmit (granted it is shareware, and worth the buy!).

    Fetch and Transmit have those too (though I realize they're not free). If you're a student, check out Fetch. It's not as good as Transmit, but it's better than Cyberduck, and it's free to students.

    Cyberduck as everyone else said is decent.

    Yummy is on sale for $9.97 US for today.

    Cyberduck. What happened to the 100 or so threads on free FTP clients? ;)

    FireFTP is an extension available for Firefox.
