    Good FTP program?

    FileZilla sucks because it disconnects me from the server every 15 minutes, which is really annoying. I've been using the FireFTP extension of Firefox, but I love Chrome and want to move completely. So is there any free FTP program other than FileZilla and FireFTP that supports these features:

    - Ability to automatically switch to the defined local and remote directories on each connect (e.g public_html/app, C:\www\myproject).

    - Easy interface, drag & drop, easy renaming, etc. (Not a must)

    - (Optional) Ignore .svn directories when uploading. I would even pay for this feature, its so obvious and yet no one has it. Grrr

    Its occured on lots of servers, the ftp program needs to send a NOOP command or something every few seconds so the connection doesn't idle out. I can stay connected for hours with FireFTP on the same server..

    I recommend WS_FTP.

    You can copy and paste files to different directories.

    I ssh into my servers but use Firezilla quite a bit but have never been kicked off so I assume it's your server, too.

    I think he's using Windows here, so a Mac FTP program won't help him at all.

    core_ftp. Search for core_ftp free download. They have a pro version but I know of no one that has ever bought it. There's no need to buy it. There's nothing I can't do from just the free version.

    There are many other good options like SmartFTP, CuteFTP, Core FTP Pro and AceFTP Pro.
