Any FTP sites for testing

Hi there,

I would like to know of any existing sites that I use to test uploading/Downloading from one FTP site to another FTP site.
Also nowadays do you know if we connect to FTP site using Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer. Please let me know which one is easier

FTP has been around for a long time, and there are many viable ways to accomplish a FTP to FTP transfer.  Using Windows, you can initiate a FTP session from Internet Explorer, which will then prompt you to use Windows Explorer for your FTP session.  Personally, I use CoreFTP LE for most of my FTP needs.  See for instructions and downloads.  I find it easier to use that the Windows implementation of FTP within IE/Windows Explorer.

Unfortunately, I do not know of any open/anonymous FTP servers for you to test with, but I'm sure some simple queries in your favorite web browser will turn something up for you.  One word of caution on that:  open/anonymous FTP servers may not be the safest places, so be wary of what you test with, and what you potentially open yourself up to.
