FTP (File Transfer Protocol) programs such as FileZilla allow you transfer files between a remote computer such as your home computer or wireless laptop and files you have stored on a file server. SFTP is the secure version of FTP.
FileZilla is freely available for download at USC’s main software page. However, the USC version has a bug that doesn’t display folders correctly. We recommend downloading FileZilla directly from http://filezilla-project.org/download.php.
