    I typed in the FTP server name and got into Finder. On Windows, I just right click and "log in as", but on OS X, there was no Log in option. The only option I had was disconnect. There must be an Apple way to do this. I hate loading up Parallels for a single task(Parallel eats up all my RAM).

    Wouldn't it be easier to use an app like Cyberduck?
    It's a superb easy to use free (s)ftp app.

    I dont really need anything too complicated. It's super easy on Windows. Log in, view/modify files, and that's it. Is there anyway like this on Mac, or is Cyberduck required?

    when you use Connect to Server (Command + K in Finder), you can include your user/pass in the connection string

    For example:
    Code:
    ftp://username:password@myFTPserver/
    However, FTP is read only in Finder.
