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.

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 !
