File transfer


SFTP is a replacement for FTP and stands for secure ftp. All data, login and password are encrypted during the transfer.

WinSCP is a freeware SCP (Secure CoPy) client for Windows


FTP is the old file transfer protocol. It enables to copy files from a computer to an other across a network. Unfortunately FTP comes from an other age and is not secure. Every time the client connects to the server, the login, password and the data are transfered in clear text and are not protected. We strongly encourage the use of SCP/SFTP for any file transfer to the server.

Commercial FTP clients

Smartftp (Many languages, free trial, free for education and non commercial)
Cuteftp A very common FTP client

Open Source/Free FTP clients

FileZilla is a fast FTP client for Windows with a lot of features. Filezilla also support the secure SCP protocol.

Email clients

There are to many email clients available... If you feel like trying something different than Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express, your should give a chance to Thunderbird or Mozilla. Mozilla is not only a great browser but also a fully featured and powerful email client. It comes with an impressive security record, is remarkably privacy conscious, but still easy to use. Thunderbird is the stand alone email client from the mozilla project.
