I'm an html newbie. I just started studying it (with the aid of online tutorials).

How would I know if I already have ftp software installed in my computer? If i have to download one, which one is easier to use (for windows user)ws-ftp or cuteftp? Gosh these 2 are really new to me, maybe you can share some sound advices.


Thanks!

If you're using Windows 2000/XP then you have the option of installing Windows FTP server (it's harder to use than most so I wouldn't suggest if for a newbie).

If you want to see if you have a ftp server running then try this:

Start-->Run-->cmd

At the command prompt type:

ftp

Then type

open 127.0.0.1

More than likey you don't have any ftp servers running.

Hmm...I just realized that you are probably not looking for ftp server software. If that is the case and all you want is an FTP Client then both your posted are good. You could always use the command window using ftp but that's not the prettiest way.

If you decide to use FTP through the command window type:

ftp

Then type:

help

This will give you a list of available commands.

To exit out of FTP mode in the command window type:

quit
