Lots of web resources specifically for this course:

We will be doing ftp, file transfer protoco, during this course. You will need an ftp client for your computer. If you don't already use one, i.e you are not a complete geek, I have created a portable ftp client setup for you. You can download it now and install it to your USB or Pen drive or wait and do it in class. A pen drive will be useful.

Go to this link:

IMPORTANT: Right click on the installfilezilla.txt file and select save Target As...

Change the filename to installfilezilla.exe (be sure you know where it is saved!)

All you need to do is double-click on this file and follow the directions.

So why do we need to do this filename dance? Because the server won't let us download an executable file.
