FTP is a method of transmitting or recieving files across the Internet and stands for File Transfer Protocol. This article guide you on how to enable FTP function on the OpenWRT router.

Most of the time, I use both WinSCP (Windows Secure CoPy) & PuTTY together, especially when work with Openwrt and DD-Wrt. It is very troublesome to start each program individually. So I decided to integrate PuTTY into WinSCP.
WinSCP is an open source free SFTP client, SCP client, FTPS client and FTP client for Windows.
PuTTY is a free implementation of Telnet and SSH for Windows and Unix platforms.
I would suggest to download the portable version for both WinSCP & Putty. With the portable version, you can easily copy WinSCP & PuTTY from one computer to another computer without erase the settings.
