Hello,

I would like to know any free FTP server available so I can use it to update cisco / juniper switches and firewalls.

I am new to to this and I would like to test some devices.

Do you mean TFTP?  Usually Cisco firewalls want to use TFTP not FTP.  Not sure about Juniper though.  If it is TFTP, solarwinds has a good server here (registration required):

TFTP server is meant for the firewall to connect to you to upload.  If you are need to upload firmware to the firewall, then the TFTP client is what you want.  Cisco firewalls usually have a builtin TFTP server.  If you are just needing the client then try this:

I'm not familiar with any firewall that has regular FTP open for firmware uploads.

I think you mean TFTP server.The Microsoft Windows-based TFTP server previously provided by Cisco Systems has been discontinued and is no longer supported by Cisco Systems.

Use Solarwinds free TFTF Server:

Like said above, it's likely to be TFTP.

To manage and update (and more), you might want to look at cattools: http://www.kiwisyslog.com/kiwi-cattools-overview/

There should also be a free version.

I like to use tftpd32 for TFTP, http://tftpd32.jounin.net/
it has other useful tools like a dhcp server, syslog server and tftp client.

For FTP, I like FileZilla
