    what is the alternative to smartFTP for windows for an intel based macbook pro (MBP)

    thanks, Im new to FTP and my college offers space for a student homepage, so Im looking into an FTP client (app)

    thanks, Im a newb, love it tho. I D/L'd pureFTP manager, but couldnt figure out how to get to access the school website, Im gonna post some screenshots in a sec.

    these screenshots are the directions to use smartFTP for windows, too bad they dont have a mac alternative.
    help!

    thanks !!

    I use cyberduck for my ftp needs. Works brilliantly for what I need.

    I find it much simpler than smartFTP to use as well.

    You definitely have the right username and password? It seems to be bitching about your password in particular.

    is it free ? im a poor college student, even 20 bux is out of my budget


    edit:

    from the IT admin "Someone got back to us about this today (Monday was a holiday) and it appears the student FTP server has been having some problems. It should be back up soon."


    so Im good, I knew I was doing the right thing !

    fetch seems to work well !
