Which FTP program?

Just wondering what the rest of you suggest is a good (and free Wink ) FTP program. I currently use the WS_FTP in the File Vault, but am finding now that it is quite cumbersome to use when trying to upload files I have located in different sub-directories.

Is there a suitable FTP program that will whizz through my files and upload only those that have changed since the last session?

Which FTP program?

If you have IE6 then you don't need any FTP software.
just enter ftp://ftp.plus.net/htdocs/ and your straight into the htdocs directory.
Open your local directory using my computer and you can drag and drop files to the server.

You need to enable this function in IE.

Goto "Tools" -> "Internet options"

In the "Advanced" tab, make sure "Enable Folder view of FTP sites" is ticked.

Looks good, but you still have to change to the correct directory on the FTP side to upload files from the corresponding local directory - at least thats how I see it.

Surely there must be a way of an ftp software being able to work out the directory structure of local files and upload them to the same directories on the ftp server?

First, this shouldn't be classed as FTP software.

Try looking for mirroring software.

IE should be able to do what you ask.

However, it will upload all files, not just renewed ones. Yet it copes with the directory structure fine.
