    Can somebody please give me a link to some free FTP software that's VERY easy to use?

    All I want to do is FTP a webpage to my host and I lost my MS Frontpage.

    Thanks, brad

    I don't know how much easier WSFTP LE could be.

    That is what I have used for years.

    I have a couple diferent ftp programs on my pc. but if you want a quick and easy way to upload a few files you can ftp directly from internet explorer.

    see here> http://www.lagcc.cuny.edu/webmanager/ftptutorial.htm

    example: instead of the website address, type in the ftp address in this format: ftp://username@example.com

    not HTTP. it is FTP.



    login, then navigate to the desired directory on the server. then, just drag-and-drop a file or folder from your hard drive directory into the ftp-IE window.

    I open an instance of regular explorer to view the files on my harddrive, then drag the file over to the ftp-IE window.



    HTH!

    Real men use the command prompt:
    ftp IP_Address

    click on the start button and go to "run." Type in cmd.
    When the command prompt opens type in ftp "my site.com"
    authenticate and put your files...
