    FTP App included with Tiger?
    Hi all,

    I was wondering if there is an FTP application that comes standard on Tiger?

    If not is filezilla any good/recommeded?

    Sure, open terminal and type "Ftp ftp.site.com".

    Or, you can download something like CyberDuck

    Filezilla works well and if you are a firefox user you could download the FireFTP extension which allows you to do everything from the browser.

    Jimmy asked for built in app. There is none per se. The finder can mount an ftp server as a volume, but it is read only (you cannot upload). Why Apple crippled this otherwise awesome function, I have no idea.

    giulio, can you explain what are those sarcastic messages in your signature. I'm Aussie and I don't quite get the humour.
