I mean, if I am working with a machine who don't have an FTP program,  is possible to use the brouwser, for example Netscape, to go to some FTP server, and download or upload all the files I will? (include if I must give some password to enter in the ftp server!)
Thanks a lot.

No, Netscape don't have the capabilities as an FTP program, it will eventually download all the related files of a web page your are seeing if you try to EDIT this page. On the contrary you could use NORTON FILE MANAGER to do that as it has this capability as part of the program (or of course an FTP program).

To give rights for someone to log in to and FTP sever is much more complicated than what you are describing.
Hope this answers your questions

Yes you CAN.  First type in ftp://yourusername:yourpassword@yourdomain.com .
Ok once you do that go to File, then go to Upload file.  Then you can upload like normal

It does not work, and read what he wants! Using your method you can download or Upload ONE file at a time. So if you have enough time to waste, continue using your method.

I wanted to know if there exist some website who do the "interface" and permise the access to a FTP server (without a client FTP program).

(For example, that exist for other services on the Internet, like the newsgroups or IRC: there exist some websites who play like an interface and you can enter in the newsgroup, just like with a client newsgroup-program).
(excuse my english, I do my best!)  ;=)
