    CuteFTP Professional. I've been using it for ages, and it does what you want and even more. Built-in editor, transfer protcol is a different lil app, so if you accidently close your screen, up- or download still continues, password protect program access, mirror browsing, if you browse through your local folders, your online folders will browse with you at the same time... it's only not free, but worth the $$.
    hi there!

    3D-FTP is very good. After jumping through several free trials of other FTP clients, I stumbled upon it. After the trial, I couldn't help but pay for the full version.

    OK I am using WS-FTP Pro and I am very pleased with it.... although I haven't tried those others mentioned here.

    I like being able to CHMOD thru the FTP interface, for instance.

    Filezilla user here, though I can't say I was dissatisfied with the other FTP clients I tried. Recently used it to download a few Linux distros. It took a couple of days to do it, but it did the job just fine.

    I used to use CuteFTP Pro. But since I started using FireFTP (an extension) of Firefox, I never used CuteFTP or other FTP clients.
    I highly recommend FireFTP and Firefox.

    I'm also searching for a good FTP but.....

    At this moment I download from server "A" to my home PC and then upload from my home PC to server "B".

    I need to transfer from one server to another server (I think that maybe a FTP written in PHP, so I could run as a web page).

    OK, you can do that with WS-FTP Pro, according to the manual. I've never done it myself:
    Drag and drop
    You can use drag and drop to transfer files or folders.

    In the interface:
    With drag and drop, you can:

    Drag files from the Local System pane to a Remote Site pane or vice versa.

    Drag files from your Desktop or from any window on your local system to the FTP pane ("Remote Site") of the WS_FTP main window, and vice versa.

    Drag and drop with the right mouse button to get menu choices.

    You can drag items from one remote site and drop them on the tab associated with another to complete a site to site transfer (Pro version).

    Another choice is www.net2ftp.com, a web-based FTP client which can handle FTP to FTP issues.

    I have used several softwares and my vote is for CoreFTP (The lite version is free) and SmartFTP. I have found CoreFTP very good in holding connections even if the server is not very good in holding connections (where I found WS FTP was not good at).

    I will also try other FTP programs that has been mentioned here. Its always good to have more options.

    FileZilla and FlashFXP for me both are fantastic. FlashFXP is excellent at server-to-server transfers which can make it ideal if you want to copy data from Server A to B directly, that is if both locations support server-to-server transfers.

    Been using SmartFTP for the last few years.

    I think what you'll find is they are ALL good it just really comes down to which you like the 'feel' of better.

    I've had bad experiences with CuteFTP running away and using 100% cpu, so I just trashed it right away. Wasn't really a fair test.

    I can't stand the way wsftp looks.

    What I like best about smart ftp is how easy it is to manually hook into another ftp session, and not touch the existing. And the scheduler, and hidden queue are very nice because you aren't bothered with a window showing you what it's doing. downloading 3GB files i don't want to see the screen, just tell me when it's done. SmartFTP has an option to hide the program in the systray then pop up a window to tell you when the queue is done.

    As for this response and the one before it (considering a client that works server to server).

    The deciding point here is the server. The ftp server must allow this type of transfer. I use proftp on linux, and bulletproof on windows. I've enabled the option in windows, but I think you'll find the vast majority of admins will disable it due to the chance of saturation attacks, or just plain bursting really high if a couple people do it at the same time.

    I have never tried filezilla, but flashFXP was pretty good.
