    Standalone FTP Client

    Title says it all... I'm looking for a standalone (no install necessary) Win32 FTP Client with a GUI... I've searched Google and nothing of interest other than psftp, but it is command line =\ ... any personal accounts would be appreciated.

    psftp = PuttY with SSH / SFTP

    psftp doesn't have a GUI.

    Shall we review?

    Thanks for the effort atleast.

    FileZilla can be "installed" to a location like a removable USB Key or Drive and then run from any machine. I do this regularly as I have it installed to my USB external HDD.

    Yeah, I've used FileZilla and looked but I was looking for more of just a single file rather than an install to an external media...

    Interestingly enough, I found out winscp has a standalone exe and it is very functional for what I need... can be found here: http://winscp.sourceforge.net/eng/do....php#download2 if anyone is interested.

    If you check www.i-tree.org there's also iXplorer -- a frontend for pscp (and psftp too if I'm not mistaken). Cool find tho, have to add that to my bookmarks.

    This is only theory, but firefox is usb installeble so i guess you could install fireftp in the usb too.

    that would make it stand alone i guess. If not well its still interesting.

    Nah, it's no more portable than FileZilla (I know, I use FF on my USB Drive too), and still is a fairly large install package compared to the single-exe approach jag is looking for.
