Obtaining and Installing CuteFTP

CuteFTP is a Windows and Mac based File Transfer Protocol (FTP) application or an FTP Client. Like most FTP software, CuteFTP uses a user friendly graphical interface to perform tasks that would normally require a cumbersome command line utility. It gives users the ability to upload, download, and edit files on remote FTP servers without having to know all the details of the protocol itself.

Although CuteFTP is not free, it does have a free 30 day trial. If a free FTP client is needed, there are several out there, such as FileZilla.
