    I was wondering how you can access your web server through ftp. for example in windows you have the network connections and then go through that. i can not seem to find it on mac os x. i have got leopard and i do not mean the thing which turns your computer into a server, so i do not want FTP accessible files on my computer. NOT that. only reason i say that quite strongly is because thats what comes up on the search engine a lot.

    also i use filezilla, but that only allows one connection at a time. which is why i would like another option. i have thought on cyberduck, as well as filezilla. but cyberduck looks a bit strange,at least when i used it on another computer. but if that allows more than one connection then i may get that. but the main thing is ftp access through osx

    thanks....for reading this long post

    Do you mean mapping a network drive over FTP? In Finder, go to "Go" then "Connect to server" then "ftp://<user>:<password>@<ftp_host>"
