    on in the Finder program i punch command + k and connect to my comcast FTP. once the files are shown i'd like to be able to drag and drop and delete files in it but it doesnt allow that. sometimes it says i dont have permission to. any ideas?

    Well, I've never used command keys, but once I connect, I never have a problem dragging and dropping. Do you have the account username and password saved?

    Finder is not a very good ftp program. Transmit is much better and is what I use.

    i disagree. finder is great. you just need to use a ftp program to set the permissions so you can access them first, then ftp will be fine.

    call me stupid but i haven't been able to use Finder to FTP. I use Transmit and it works great. my ftp site is ftp-www.earthlink.net. how would I set that up using Finder?

    Oh shit. I am retarded. I thought you were talking about Transmit, not finder. Sorry. But the same answer probably applies.

    You cannot upload files to FTP sites with Finder currently. I agree with the rest about Transmit. It is a great program.
