Obtaining and Installing CuteFTP


CuteFTP is a Windows- and Mac-based File Transfer Protocol (FTP) application or an FTP client. Like most FTP software, CuteFTP uses a user-friendly graphical interface to perform tasks that normally require a cumbersome command line utility. It allows users to upload, download, and edit files on remote FTP servers without knowing all the details of the protocol itself.

A trial version of CuteFTP is available. If you're looking for other free FTP clients, several are out there, such as FileZilla.
