    FTP (File Transfer Protocol)

    To keep it brief, thats when someone starts an FTP server on his computer, hosting the files, and someone else connects to his server and downloads files. Unless I'm mistaken, its an absolutely safe way to share files. If you need more info, Google should be able to help.

    FTP is not file sharing. It is the same as downloading a file from a website, only the site is a person's computer. In order for you to share you would have to set up your own server on your pc.
    signature removed, check the boardrules.

    Yes, now I remember.
    Time ago, when I had a personal technician, my PC was doing something wrong, the he told me by phone to type this addres of him on my browser and to download certain tool to fix it.
    Damn, I have to learn to do that, just for the fun of it.

    Ah...good ol' FTP serving. Remember years ago when you could find server chatrooms and have all the music shot into your email box and you could download it whenever you wanted

    I use this method almost 90% of my downloading (well use to have no hdd space now) its fast (most are 10mbit hacks or legit 100mbits) its easy (flashfxp is very easy to use), it gets files before anything else (provided your on a 2hr pre or better).

    Yeah but unless you are about to start handing out the adresses and passwords for loads of sites most of us are not about to get onto them.
