Any Mac users know if there is a firewall client out there which allows the transfer of files via FTP? We have a Mac in the office which needs to be able to send things to publishers' FTP sites - we can buy the right FTP software for it but are still searching for a firewall client.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks all for your advice so far.

Well, all I know is that I have a Firewall client on my PC which allows me to publish and upload online course material, defeating the existing corporate firewall software which stops us downloading whatever we like from the web.

Basically our Mac needs to be able to FTP large files over to our publishers, and our IT Support Team reckon we need a firewall client AND FTP software to do it. Sorry I can't be more specific, but this is about the limit of my computer knowledge Smiler
