I know FileZilla has a buried setting which clashes with SMF hashing for attachments.

From the Simplemachines forum:
Quote from: Sir Osis of Liverthere's a specific reason for corrupt transfers, and I believe it only occurs in FileZilla using default settings.  In FZ Transfer menu there are three options, Auto, ASCII, and Binary, Auto is default.  But buried in Edit -> Settings -> Transfers -> File Types there's a checkbox for 'Treat files without extension as ASCII file', that's the killer, it's checked by default.  It's just a fluke (or maybe a flounder ) that the setting conflicts with SMF file hash.  It's caused a lot of grief in recent years.
So I figure maybe avoid that one?


So if anyone can recommend a good FTP client and relevant settings that'd be great ! :)

I still use FileZilla, just change that setting.  ;)

Look here>> List of free FTP Clients

I would recommend WinSCP from that List.

I use Coreftp. Never had a problem so far.

Which one? You mean where it always tacks it on to the end of your message, instead of where your cursor is?

yes but also it doesn't get focus - must click on the textarea to begin typing.
