mattwnz: My reason for still using wsftp, is that I have all the ftp details already stored in it, and you can back them up. I don't think filezilla is a good for that, and it is a pain to copy them across.

I only use one site really - Geekzone, and access via the VPN SFTP. Free is better and configuration is not a big deal because it's easy to manage a single site. If I had more then certainly that would be a deal breaker.

FileZilla then should be fine for you. I have found it does pretty much everything that wsftp can do.

You can easily export and import sites saved in site manager with filezilla

But can you import wsftp sites, into filezilla? I couldn't find a way to do this.

I also use Filezilla or WinSCP.

If you want an ftp server better than IIS's Filezilla Server is good too.

For interactive sessions I use FileZilla.

However, there is one process that I want to run automatically on a schedule. To do that, I wrote a bit of VB Script that calls a Windows batch file. The batch file uses the Windows built-in FTP client. The VB Script is set up to run at scheduled times using Windows Scheduler. The VB Script also writes a text log file each time it runs, to let me know if there were any problems. All rather convoluted, but it works.
