Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
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.
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.
