I need to transfer some large files with my brother.
We are both on ADSL and i would like to know if there is an easy to setup and use FTP program that we could use to transfer files between us.
Tried to use Yahoo Messanger etc. but this has a limitation on file size so is of no use to us.

well to transfer back and forth between you two, both of you are going to have to run a ftp server, the two biggest ones are BulletProof Server, and Serv-U.

then you will need a ftp client software like Cute FTP, or FlashFXP

anyway that should get you started

Serv-U is rather nice, I use it. CuteFTP is more or less friendly and really easy to use.

I though I might bump it up, either the starter of the thread forgot, or doesn't care to come back and reply...

Thanks for all the replies.

I will try using Bulletproof for a server and WS FTP for client.

Have downloaded these and have just got to set them up.
Wont be able to set my brothers machine up just yet, so i will let you know how i got on when i manage to set both machines up.

To try and see if my FTP setup works, could i use my laptop on dialup connection and my main system on ADSL and communicate between the two machines as though i was miles away etc?

If the FTP server was set up and running on the main computer then yes, any computer could connect as long as they username/password was correct for it.

A less complicated option is to get ICQ and you can send any size you like and it has a resume option if you get dc'ed or something next time you send the same file it resumes where it left off ...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
