    64 bit FTP software... and why did Microsoft leave out a FTP software
    out of all versions of win 7?

    I update my web at Network Solutions with ftp don't know any other way
    to update than ftp...

    They didn't. IE/Explorer includes FTP for graphic users, ftp.exe still
    exists for command line users.

    I'd guess that depends on what the aforementioned administrators are
    trying to accomplish.

    You can also map a remote site in Explorer and transfer files just like
    you would with any drive/directory.

    Right click on "Computer" and select "Map network drive." At the bottom
    of the popup is an option to "Connect to a web site that you can use to
    store your documents and pictures." That will start the "Add network
    location wizard." Just read and follow the directions.

    Hint: If you want to access the remote site without logging in each time,
    include the username and password in the URL. For example,
    "ftp://username:p"
