Can someone recommend a free FTP client that will work on an older OS?

Asked by nikipedia (27526points) April 28th, 2008

I need to run a free FTP client on OS X 10.4.11. FileZilla only works on 10.5 or better and Google has been no help. Can I get an older version of FileZilla or is there another FTP client I’m not thinking of?

Cyberduck is free and will work. And it has a really cute icon. It is the FTP client I use.

yup, or transmit, but transmit is paying software though

I second Cyberduck, but also want to put a plug in for the built-in command line FTP client. I’m not a command line geek, but it’s really handy to have around in a pinch. Go to Applications > Utilities > Terminal. Then check out this tutorial: http://www.artsackett.com/grey_papers/ftp/ftp.html

Thanks, all. Mangus—unfortunately this is something I have to ask a technophobe to do, so easy > efficient.

FileZilla is the one I use.
