    Cyberduck works fine for me.

    Transmit it good, but you'll have to pay for it or the missing features will erode your patience after a while

    Your description of cyberduck is the total opposite of mine.

    But yours is the opposite of mine. I hate Cyberduck. It&#39;s utter garbage.

    Transmit is teh win. May not be freeware, but it&#39;s the best one for the job.

    OS X has a great built in ftp client. Open Terminal, ftp domain.local

    Too easy, never fails.

    I use JFTP from http://jmethods.com/ which is free for non-commercial use or Fugu (also free) from http://rsug.itd.umich.edu/software/fugu/.
    If it&#39;s a simple job, I use /usr/bin/ftp or /usr/bin/sftp as appropriate.

    I just paid the &#036;40 odd for Transmit. It&#39;s such a good application, I can&#39;t resist but pay for it

    I found Cyberduck to be quite good until it couldn&#39;t connect to my xbox properly. OneButton is a POS. Transmit seems to do the job and has become my FTP app of choice (in the dock)

    Haven&#39;t heard of RBrowser...will hav eto check it out.

    RBrowser is an easy to use ftp client. The basic (free) version is good enough for managing web sites and you can always buy a licence to upgrade if you need extra functionality.

    I agree with the Transmit guys. I keep the .dmg on my hard drive and every time it goes past its free time I delete the .app, delete the library/prefs, empty trash, put it back on again and back to the start of the freebie time.
    Should I be saying that?
    I&#39;ll pay for it one day when I can afford it - promise&#33; :-)

    No-one has mentioned fetch yet....what a pity. it really is a great program, its easy to use and it was the first program i found to help me utilise my free webspace with my web providers, having seen this topic i tried ftp from it to my imac, easy as pie.

    that&#39;s not to say that terminal wasn&#39;t fun, its just I&#39;m of the generation that grew up with colour screens and.........cars... :P
