The more secure SCP protocol is great -- if it's available to you, but
not all hosts support it.
When installing PmWiki on clients' hosts, my preferences are
1) a command line and svn if the host supports svn
2) WinSCP if the host supports SCP
3) the FireFTP plug-in for FireFox
However, when teaching newbies how to upload large files or large
numbers of files (for example, images for use with ThumbList, or MP3s
and videos for streaming) to their sites, I usually fall back on WinXP's
built-in FTP client, "My Network Places", because (once it's set up) it
has *zero* learning curve, and there's a lot to be said for that! Last
I checked, the MacOS equivalent didn't support uploads, only
downloads... perhaps that's fixed with a new version. --Ben S.
