Best FTP client to access files remotely
  

When it comes to FTP it comes to access and transfer files remotely, the old way. You can then log on to an FTP server to upload, edit, or download files from a computer remotely, using this communication protocol. FTP is still used on farms to allow employees to access the general file and the webmaster to manage, upload and edit files on a website. An FTP server can also be created to exchange files between computers on the same network, office or at home but did not make much sense. Becomes very first to share files between computers with the simple settings of Windows or other operating systems. Also you can use external programs that allow you to synchronize files between computers in a much more comfortable.

The easiest way to create an FTP server is using an old 10 years but which remains the most used: FileZilla. FileZilla can be downloaded in both client and server versions, is free and opensource and is available for Windows, Linux and Mac. Filezilla supports file transfers via FTP, SFTP, and FTPS (FTP over SSL/TLS). FileZilla, according to statistics from Sourceforge, is among the top 10 most downloaded open source programs in the world ranking of all time. Beyond the fact that there are thousands of guides on the Internet findable, is very easy to use and also supports dragging files. There is the portable version of FileZilla can be downloaded on the website winPenPack.

The FTP client number two is WinSCP , which is also a popular and free program. This program for transferring files from an FTP server to your computer, communication supports SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) and SCP (Secure Copy) using SSH (Secure Shell). Its main purpose is to copy files between computers safely. With WinSCP you can also work on files remotely, even edit or delete them because there is a built-in editor to open text documents and save them after editing. WinSCP has become very popular among users who have an iPhone unlocked with JailBreak because it becomes an easy way to transfer files from computer to the iPhone and vice versa. WinSCP is also available in portable version, which is useful if you want to always have your USB device.

Who can not stand Filezilla because it has an ugly interface and is always equal to itself can find a better alternative to FileZilla for Windows using one of these three programs:
  • FTP Rush is very similar but more beautiful to behold.
  • Free FTP
  • GoFTP who claims to be the fastest.
The program's newest, the best one really seems to do the file transfer is FTP CyberDuck, born to the Mac and now also available for Windows PCs. So for me, both are OK. Rest depends on user's need.

Cyberduck is much more than an FTP client, it makes it possible to access and edit files through the most used Internet communication protocols. So not only supports transfers in remotely via FTP, SFTP, FTP-SSL, but also via WebDAV and WebDAV SSL, the communication protocol HTTP or HTTPS to download or upload files from hosting sites on the Internet (only support it if I tried SkyDrive already but not work). Cyberduck supports Drag and drop to import bookmarks from other FTP client like FileZilla, has the function of synchronization and allows you to view files preview before downloading or doing anything else.
