FTP Clients

 

FTP stands for “File-Transfer-Protocol.” Basically, it’s the way you are going to submit your materials online for this class (and for testing your product). You will need an FTP client in order to transfer your files. There are plenty of free clients available for all platforms (OS X, Windows, Linux, etc.). I haven’t listed any Linux ftp clients b/c, quite frankly, if you’re running Linux, you probably already have your own preferred ftp client (or use ssh, or another method of transferring files)

  • Fetch

    Although Fetch is actually a paid application, the developers willingly give it away for FREE to those in education (isn’t that nice of them!).

  • Filezilla

    This is an open-source and actively developed ftp client (which means it’s up-to-date). It works on mac, windows, or linux.

  • Fire FTP

    This is an open-source and actively developed ftp client (which means it’s up-to-date). You install it directly into the Firefox browser, so though you might be prone think of it more as a FF extension, but it really is a full-fledged ftp client. It works on mac, windows, or linux.
