Can BulletProof FTP handle uploads? I am looking for a good (and free/lowcost) FTP client that can handle uploads. I am running on a Win box. Any suggestions?

Never used Bulletproof FTP, unless it is just a download manager, I do not see why it would not be able to handle uploads. you also already have an ftp client installed on your computer, (unless Microsoft decided to remove it), you can open a DOS prompt and type FTP, should bring up the ftp client, you can learn alittle of the commands by just typing a question mark at the prompt

I've used IE's built in FTP setup, but.....it didn't meet my needs/desires. I'm looking for one that can handle scheduled uploads, etc, so that it connects, uploads/downloads, and then disconnects on its own. I don't like uploading while people are surfing the site, so I like to try to do it at about 2-3 in the morning, course, I don't like having to think at that hour. (Gaming is fine, but thinking....no :D ) IE cannot do that.

Go!Zilla is great for downloading, but I cannot get a handle on the FTP aspects of it (connecting to server, uploading, etc) and so it just kinda didn't do much for me either. (sorry, really shoulda mentioned this when I made my original post, but at the time I was tired, and not thinking clearly. :P )

I am looking for other options. Thanks for the suggestions! Any others would be welcome. B)

why not use the Windows, whatever OS your using, built in task scheduler to upload the files for you.
did you check those sites for possible solutions to what you ask, since they are in fact ftp client, they might handle this for you. and you did not say if you checked them or not.

if you had a UNIX box, you could set up a crontab to do all this for you when your sleepin'.

dont forget that when your sleeping, other will be awake around the world and could be acessing the site, so you might not want to hammer the site with uploading or downloading anyway.

you could use the built in ftp client, the DOS version, make a couple batch files with preset commands and files you want to upload. and then tell the Windows Task Scheduler to execute the batch files you made.
