eFob Portable FTP Software
Portable FTP Software
On this page I am listing the very best portable FTP software for usb thumb drives, SSD Flash Drives, iPads, and mobile devices.
The portable software I'm listing here is either portable FTP software I use myself or the best available without charge or open source portable FTP software.
I use two of the portable ftp programs from this category. Filezilla works perfect for me when I want to connect to an FTP server and quickly upload or download a file. WinSCP is my choice for updating websies because I can use WinSCP's scripting abilities to automate the transfers.
