tell me about FTP clients

Somewhere along the way I missed this bit of tech.

I have friend that wants to set me up with cute FTP pro. Does it really matter which one you get? And how do you set up the specs? What specs do you need?

Is there some instructional somewhere?

cuteftp is among the better ftp clients... you can use many of the free clients also. if you are connecting to the server all you need is the hostname(ip address), username and password and the port if it is different which usually its 21.

whats a good free one?

filezilla

Filezilla is good and free. I use it mostly.

SmartFTP is the best IMHO.
