    Default <newbie> ftp in Vista Business 32 bit

    hi

    I'm wondering if Vista Business 32 bit has built in support for ftp?. I
    have some files on a ftp server here and I want to transfer those files over
    to my new laptop (vista business 32bit). So I hoped MS has embedded some
    kind of software in vista that can use for this..

    any suggestions?

    You can use IE to do FTP:

    Frankly, I've always felt that using a free third-party FTP client was
    preferable, both in XP and Vista.

    Some good ones are FileZilla, FTP Commander, and WS_FTP.

    In XP you can also add an FTP site in Network Places. I am not sure, but I
    think you can also do that in Vista, by right clicking in Computer. I
    cannot check right now, as I only use Vista on my HTPC.

    This is how to do it without extra software:

    You can use Windows Explorer.

    Just right click any blank area (under "Computer") and select ADD A
    NETWORK LOCATION then simply follow the wizard to set up your FTP site.

    It's a very lame FTP interface though with limited capabilities.

    I highly recommend finding a copy of FileZilla 2.+ and installing
    that. Avoid version 3.
