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.
