anything that is great that dosnet require me to pay for it.
I haven't tried many programs, I just stuck with the first free one I got that works, so it might not necessary be the best. It's called Cyberduck, it's very easy to use, has a nice interface, and it's open source.
For more information, the official site is here.
rbrowserlite (versiontracker link) is probably the most common and probably best free ftp program...
if you ever decide to upgrade to a paid program, panic's Transmit is a great program...
for really fst stuff where i dont need the gui, i use terminal
for the other stuff - rbrowser lite.
Yeah, fugu is easy to use, and has a great interface. Be sure to check this one out!
ftp from command line works too if you know how to use it.
imho transmit is well worth the money. its the best graphical ftp program available for os x (all the other stuff, rbrowser, cyberduck, something's always just not that great about it).
Panic makes great Mac software, support them
I just experimented with logging into my ftp server through the terminal, but are there any man pages on how to use it, or can anyone suggest a good website that shows me how to use ftp through the terminal?
Thanks in advance,
I still say stick with fugu. Its free, its won an award from Apple, its well designed, and its got a cool name!
the built in ftp in finder or terminal does all I need!
Yes, this really is a good piece of kit, fast for browsing your mac with too.
Load up finder, hit cmd +k and then login that way - it'll mount the ftp account for you in finder, and you can just drag and drop files
Even Safari can be used as a FTP program. From the URL bar enter in the ftp site.
ftp://[name or ip address]
Cyberduck is an awesome free FTP program (even supports SFTP). It's a really good program
It has some good powerful features (like external editor support, rendezvous support, and keychain support) that don't get in the way if you just need something simple.
yes but as far as i know, (and please correct me if im wrong) you cant upload files this way.
Yes, you're right. Finder does read-only FTP, no writing to an FTP server. I'm hoping that the Finder would have built-in read and write FTP in the next major revision, because it is a sorely neede feature. I don't know why it's not included right now, since it can't be that hard of a feature to implement.
At the % prompt:
for example: ftp snerdly.gwonkal.com
blah blah blah : email@example.com
At this prompt, you can say: help
