    Hi, I need some help ftp to my server from the lion built in ftp client. I have been using CyberDuck for a long time, but lately it has been giving me some problem so I switch to the built in client, but I keep getting this error message from lion "The share does not exist on the server. Please check the share name, and then try again." what did I do wrong? CyberDuck always let me get to my server, but after a few minute, it starts to freeze.

    Try FileZilla. Cross platform and open source.

    Have you tried examining the settings for each, and for your server? The fact that two clients can't get on reliably means something is probably wrong with your connection.

    We'd need more info to help you.

    File Zilla works just peachy and is well supported and kept up to date and cross platform and free.

    Lots of other good alternatives if you want to pay for an ftp client.
