    Transmit works great for me. All 10 minutes at a time!

    edit: I put terminal instead of transmit

    I just use the command "ftp" in console. If you don't know the basics of it:

    - "ftp [email protected]" to connect to your ftp
    - Enter your password at the prompt
    - You can do "ls" to view the directory you are in
    - Use "cd" to change directories i.e. "cd pictures" would put you in the "pictures" folder
    - Use "get" to download files from your server i.e. "get cellphonepics.jpg"
    - Use "put" to upload files. You need to browse to the directory in your hard drive that you are going to upload from first. This means that before you run ftp, you should be in the directory that has the files you want to upload. You can use "ls" and "cd" to get there.

    Example: "cd desktop" (my file is on the desktop), ftp [email protected], enter password, "cd folderyouwantitin", "put cellphonepics.jpg" and that will upload cellphonepics.jpg from my desktop to the folder on my ftp.

    You can also do "put cellphonepics.jpg cellpics.jpg" where the second file name is what it will be named after you upload it. That works the same with "get" as well.

    - You can create directories with "mkdir" i.e. "mkdir pictures"
    - You can remove directories with "rmdir" i.e. "rmdir pictures"
    - You can delete files with "delete" i.e. "delete cellphonepics.jpg"

    I hope this helps you.

    type "passive"

    if it seems to be giving you trouble and everything you do times out, try disabling the OS X firewall temporarily

    I could be wrong but when you do ftp, it uses 20 or 21 automatically.
