If you run a web site, one piece of software you probably can’t live without is a good FTP client. What we use and recommend is Filezilla.
Filezilla is an open source FTP client that is available for both Linux and Windows. The software runs exactly the same, and you can import and export configurations between the two operating systems.
Setting up bookmarks is fast and easy, which makes fast work of getting right to your images directory etc. when you log in.
A really nice feature of Filezilla is the network configuration tool. Using this wizard, Filezilla will configure itself to run through your local routers and firewalls that might be in place.
Just follow the instructions on the screen as you click through the wizard!
