    I am looking for a good sftp client. I have cyber duck now, but am only downloading at 22kbs.

    I don't think Cyberduck is to blame for a slow download, but it you want to try some other clients, check out Transmit and Fetch. Both solid s/ftp clients.

    Also, you could just use Terminal. That's what I use for the occasional up- or download... :cool:

    Terminal is the best (s)ftp client. ;) Although the 22kbps downstream has nothing to do with your client.

    why download and use something else when you already have Terminal built in?

    I use the terminal for quick-and-dirty, but if you want something powerful, Interarchy is a good option--very Mac-like interface, you can have it open a document in TextWrangler (or your editor of choice) for direct editing (when you save, it's automatically uploaded), lots of bonus features, not outrageously expensive. And of course if you're mirroring a local copy of a site, you can set up a double-clickable document that will execute the mirror operation for you with no user interaction.

    I've heard good things about Transmit, too, but I personally prefer Interarchy. At work, where free trumps power, Fugu gets the job done with a GUI--nice app.

    I agree with everybody else, though, that it's not likely your client is to blame for your slow speeds.

    It has to be CyberDuck; it's going at exactly half the maximum upload speed is on my line. It was going at full speed when just connecting to an ftp, and not a secure one. I haven't tried anything else yet, but will when I need to upload again.
