You can with Transmit (v. 3, don't know about earlier versions). Works like a charm.

Interanarchy is where it's at.

In our desire to impose form on the world we have lost the capacity to see the form that is there;
and in that lies not liberation but alienation, the cutting off from things as they really are. --...

You said that already. Don't repeat stuff like a robot, or people are gonna think you're spamming.

I use and like Cyberduck and Transmit. I use Cyberduck more than the Transmit, so I'm gonna go with it.

I finally paid for a full license of Transmit (i used to just use the 30-day demo when necessary, and i'd usually have re-installed before i next needed an ftp app (from home... my work always supplied a license for fetch). you can enjoy free all you want, but i love the transmit interface, the features are great (and they are usually first with them), and i feel obliged to support panic and sticking with the platform as long as they have. the price might seem steep, but consider that the incremental updates usually pack a lot of functionality and are free, and the upgrades are quite cheap and usually represent a major leap in functionality (a lesson a lot of larger companies could learn from).

i have to admit, if interarchy 8 had come out a few weeks ago when i bought transmit, i would have had a really difficult decision to make. interarchy looks awesome now.

I used to use it, but switched a few months ago to Cyberduck. The onebutton people have gone so long (almost one full year now) without making any progress. Despite showing potential... that project appears to be dead.

I'm quite happy with Cyberduck myself, though I haven't tried any others due to liking Cyberduck so much.

I used to use Goliath several years ago. However, Transmit is a boon for iDisk data transfer and I'm happy to support Panic!

I use transmit for the long filename compatibility. It's complicated, but quite a few will limit the long file names. It is totally up to the developer of the FTP software to built it in.

I like Transmit because the icon is cute.

You can get an FTP plugin for Firefox now. It's FREE! and works well.

Transmit is fantastic. You can edit the html directly within transmit. I have never had a single problem with it.

Try FireFTP it's a free extension to the FireFox web brower. I'm a freelance designer and often I'm working somewhere where I need to connect to an FTP. But the location does not have Fetch on the computer i'm working on. FireFTP gets me out of that mess every time. It may not be the prettiest but it works great and is easy to set up. Of course the best pate is that it's FREE! Of course making a donation to the developer is also an excelent idea.

Transmit, one of the best FTP clients for Mac that I've seen. My second choice would be Captain FTP.

I have 0 experiences with ftp's, but i'm looking for a program that i can send large files 700M to over 1Gig, can i do that with ftp? I'm working on a movie that i made when we were on holiday and i wanted to share it with my family who lives abroad. The movie is not yet ready, as i will be adding also lots of pictures and other stuff too, but i'm sure it will get closer to 2 Gigs, maybe even more.

I'm working on this movie with my brother who lives abroad, and sending a DVD back and forth cannot be the best solution? We're doing it together and changing/adding stuff all the time etc and then send it to the other to check it out and do some changes. Would i be able to do this with ftp?

If anybody has done something similar, please share your experiences.


Thanks!!

I have used Transmit for a long time. Before that it was Anarchie. But the latter became bloatware.

FTP is not the right protocol for your purpose. You have to consider a couple things. 1. The end user must download it also so you need know if their connection speed is adequate. 2. FTP does not have a continue feature so if you accidently get disconnected at 99.99% done, you'll have to start all over with your transfer.

You may want to consider serving the movie over the internet so that it can be viewed in a browser, either QT of Flash would seem like likely candidates for delivering a movie. If you send your family a DVD by mail, they will probably get it sooner than you uploading by FTP and them downloading a gig of data, with questionable success at burning the DVD before watching it.

Just my 2 cents (US)

I tell my students that the only stupid question is the one they DON'T ask. That being said, I must admit that my question might seem stupid to the members on this thread as you seem to know all about FTP. I have read the Wiki- definition about FTP, but I still don't understand when it would be used. How does it's usage differ from an email's usage?

The wiki- definition: FTP or File Transfer Protocol is used to transfer data from one computer to another over the Internet, or through a network

Different from Email, FTP can send much larger files (e.g., > 4GB) and much more files in a reliable way. It is similar to samba (network neighbors).

I prefer CrossFTP client at google it Its size is small and supports a number of FTP/SFTP protocols as well as the synchronization. It also has free FTP server to start with.

Why is this thread still stickied? Shouldn't FAQs be stickied? Important notices? I'm sure this question has been asked plenty of times, which would make it great for an FAQ.

I use Cyberduck everyday and it lets me continue an interrupted transfer whether I am uploading or downloading.

Has anyone tried a MacFUSE SFTP solution? How is the speed and compatibility? I would just prefer Finder access anyway to SFTP instead of using a separate app.

Transmit is too clunky for me. I prefer the power and flexibility of Captain FPT. It uploads my files and web pages much faster and with fewer errors. I can directly copy data from one FTP to another without any problems. It's the best hands down.

Transmit is my vote too but this app is worth checking out - especially for looks (of course it has the functionality as well), I think this is real cool.
