There's always the FTP client that came with your computer. For Windows or Linux, just go into a command prompt, CD into the directory you want to send files from, and type in "ftp hostname", where hostname is the name or address of the server. Once you're logged in, the first thing is to type "bin". Then, the following commands will work for you: cd - change directory on the server (/use/forward/slashes) lcd - change your local directory pwd - show the name of the server directory ls - print a list of files in the server directory put - send a file to the server get - retreive a file from the server bye - quit ftp and return to the command prompt help - display a list of all valid commands help command - display a few lines of help for that command Paul
