Only recently I was asked what an FTP client was exactly and why would an Internet user require the use of an FTP client when 'everything' could be done through a web browser. It seems strange that only ten years ago the primary tool we used for accessing files on the Internet, was through an FTP client. Most servers enabled you to login, browse directories and download files. However, there are also other reasons, such as being able to remotely access a server and make changes such as create a directory, upload files and make admin changes to user rights.
WinSCP 4.07 is a free FTP tool that you can use to login to a remote host, upload files and even synchronise files from your local to your remote computer. There's also a portable version that enables you to take your FTP passwords on the move and administer the remote host, server or computer whilst you are away from your desktop machine.
