      you need an ftp client. there is one built into IE6 but many prefer a free program called Coffee Cup. Also popular is CuteFTP for a small fee (~$15). go to http://www.tucows.com and download, say, Coffee Cup. Install it and configure it for the ftp server you need to exchange files with. you’ll need a server name like http://ftp.myserver.com or http://www.yourserver.com and also a username and password plus maybe a starting folder. once again, get this info:
      server name
      username
      password
      starting folder

      hope this helps…

      You may be able to FTP (if uploading a website) directly through Internet Explorer.

      “ftp.sitename@url”
      I stopped using WSFTP pro for most stuff now.

      Smart FTP is also an easy to use program. It has explorer like iterfaces. It is also free.

      You can go to a command prompt and FTP [FTP address]
      To get options: type FTP \? at prompt.
      Not exactly Windows, but it works.
