Does anyone have a recommendation for a good free ftp program I can use that isn't full of adware or spyware?

I don't know the feature sets in the others mentioned, but FileZilla allows you to store/backup your settings and your connections in an XML file. A real sweet feature when you want/need to share it within your company or even if you need to use it on a different machine. You can carry it around on your USB memory stick.

If your just looking for a simple FTP prog try FireFTP its a Firefox Plugin not many advanced features but I think its quite good.

SmartFTP for Windows, and Transmit for Mac OS X

I've had good results with FileZilla.

Transmit for Mac OS X

I hadn't heard of that one. I'll have to try it out.

Maybe not ... OS X 10.2.8, and therefore the PowerBook G3, is to ancient for it to work ...

I must be the only person with issues with Smart FTP... it continually won't open when I launch the program at times. Annoyed the hell out of me, so I switched to Filezilla and so far, it's been great.

its not opening because you are running a cracked version that was not cracked properly

FileZilla is very good, although I prefer WS_FTP Pro which was free on a computer cover magazine.

i remember using WS_FTP_LE in the early days. It's free if you install as educational. It still seems to be a solid working client.... although you wont find the bells and whistles you get out of a modern client.

I will echo this. Had a number of recurrent issues with Smart FTP. Swithed to Filezilla and have been very pleased for the past couple years now.

Me too, that was my first FTP client. Recently WS_FTP Home turned up free on a cover magazine, but I didn`t like the changes they made in that and reverted back to the Pro version.
