Which platform ?

sunnycoderCommented:
Also, do you have some other restrictions - Does the library have to be written in C? Or would it suffice if it can be called from a C/C++ program? Would a ftp client source code serve your purpose?

libcURL supports FTP, FTPS, and TFTP protocols (among others).  It is also free and multi-platform.

Excerpt from the web site: http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/

"libcurl is a free and easy-to-use client-side URL transfer library, supporting FTP, FTPS, TFTP, HTTP, HTTPS, TELNET, DICT, FILE and LDAP. libcurl supports SSL certificates, HTTP POST, HTTP PUT, FTP uploading, HTTP form based upload, proxies, cookies, user+password authentication (Basic, Digest, NTLM, Negotiate, Kerberos4), file transfer resume, http proxy tunneling and more!"

"libcurl is highly portable, it builds and works identically on numerous platforms, including Solaris, NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Darwin, HPUX, IRIX, AIX, Tru64, Linux, UnixWare, HURD, Windows, Amiga, OS/2, BeOs, Mac OS X, Ultrix, QNX, OpenVMS, RISC OS, Novell NetWare, DOS and more..."

"libcurl is free, thread-safe, IPv6 compatible, feature rich, well supported, fast, thoroughly documented and is already used by many known, big and successful companies and numerous applications."
