FTP FILES WITHOUT A THIRD-PARTY PROGRAM

Need to email somebody a file that's larger than his 5-MB email limit? Use FTP, because you can upload huge files with no restriction. You probably already knew that, but did you know that you don't have to buy a third-party FTP client to FTP your files? That's right baby, you can do it right from within Tiger. Here's how: Go to the Finder's Go menu, and choose Connect to Server. When the dialog appears, just type the FTP address where you want the file to go and click Connect. You may either get directly connected, or depending on whose server you're connecting to, it may ask you for your Name and Password (that keeps people from just jumping on anyone's server and uploading files at random). Once you're “in,” you'll see a folder—now you can just drag-and-drop the file you want to transfer into that folder and the transfer will begin.
