Can someone help me to find out a tool similar to CoreFTP but less cost than coreftp?

Specially we need the feature of generating private key to access the server. Please help.

you don't need to generate the keys in Filezilla.

The keys are generated using the puTTY toolkit, available here - you want the puTTYgen tool, but may want to check out the others too :)

All other implementations of ssh (on which sftp & scp ) are based do have ssh-keygen included. For windows the earlier mentioned puttygen will do the work.

filezilla is based on the puTTY codebase (it uses a helper dll for sftp) so needs the keys in putty's native format anyhow.

For other uses, I usually recommend the puTTY tool anyhow - its a nice, convenient GUI tool for your average windows user, and can export to the more common formats (and just cut-and-paste from its generation window to get you the key you need for their authorized_keys file)

There are three main key tools I recommend for different tasks. this is one of them, the other two are XCA and Keytool IUI :)
