Korko asked me if I knew about any FTP’s. I put together a little list here. But most of you will have no use of it 🙂
What is an FTP site?
Essentially it’s a server connected to internet, configured to server files via the File Transfer Protocol, you can use an FTP client to connect to it for example, fillezilla client. You can host your own server too. Typically nowadays it’s mostly used as an easy way to connect to your hosting provider if you have a website. In the present it’s still used to server direct downloads in some forums or web-sites but other solutions such as mediafire, google drive or mega are way more popular.
Some or most of FTP, can be accessed using the web browser but only for downloading. for example here’s a screenshot of scene.org
Here are the servers to connect:
ftp.scene.org (web: files.scene.org) – Scene file archive
ftp.amigascne.org – Amiga demoscene related
ftp.pokefinder – C64 FTP Search (Commodore 64 related)
ftp.scs-trc.net – C64 demoscene, MS-Dos etc
ftp.modland.com – Modules, chiptunes and more (Massive music collection!)
ftp.aminet.net – For Amiga users since 1991 (no warez here)
ftp.info-zip.org – (Info-ZIP) zip/unzip for various platforms
