Cyberduck: Macintosh Download for Personally Owned Computers

Cyberduck is an open source FTP and SFTP client for Mac OS X with lots of useful features and an intuitive interface. It supports all the basic functions to browse servers and transfer multiple files simultaneously.

Note: This software can be downloaded multiple times and does not limit the number of downloads.

Cyberduck is useful for individuals who want to transfer files from their home computer to a UNIX account, such as on UBUnix.  For those who may need to change file permissions on multiple files or an entire site, Cyberduck may be more advantageous then other SFTP clients, such as Fetch.

Cyberduck for Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or Later
