What's the best FTP software, for Tiger/Leopard? Preferably one that will allow me to put it on desktop and laptop for the same low price, or better yet, freeware.

(I did the search but found only rather old posts about this.)

Thanks!

Cyberduck Free, easy to use, popular.
Dozens of others- search "FTP Client" on VersionTracker.com and MacUpdate.com

Why not try something like yousendit? (http://www.yousendit.com)

Much easier then FTP headaches if you have to send large files to clients.

Thanks! I'll try Cyberduck.

Andy, I do use an FTP site (have used yousendit, attachmore, but currently using GoDaddy's Online File Folder for its slight personalization) for simple file sharing. This is for a satellite uplink company which hands out its own ftp address for uploads.

Cyberduck sound more up your alley for the deliverables. When I have had to use FTP, I actually grabbed the FireFTP plug-in for Firefox.
