Favorite Free FTP Client And Server For Windows – FileZilla

I recently discovered the application FileZilla for my Windows XP laptop. This is by far my favorite FTP client that I have ever used on Windows including the pay for applications I have used in the past. A long time ago my preference was CuteFTP, followed by WS_FTP, and then FlashFXP. Typically I am using Linux and SCP to transfer files between machines but from time to time I transfer files back and forth with various friends using FTP or I get caught troubleshooting an FTP problem for one of my clients. So anyhow I haven’t looked for a new application for a long time and decided I would look around to see what was out there. I was pleasantly surprised to run across FileZilla which not only has a cool client it has a very nice Windows FTP Server as well.

T-Mobile UMA Service Tweaks Using DD-WRT On Linksys WRT600N

So I have had random issues using my T-Mobile UMA service at my house. Typically things work a lot better in the basement or the first floor where I connect to a Linksys WRT54Gs running sveasoft’s Tailsman Basic firmware. I have previously had a ton of connection issues with the UMA service when I am upstairs in my office where my Blackberry 8320 cell phone is connecting to a Linksys WRT600N with default firmware. I have done a lot of searching around the web as well as playing around with all of the devices. I don’t think there is a specific setup that is required to make things work however below I describe what I believe to be the tweaks that have helped me the most.
