Cuteftp / SmartFTP are good but they only offer 30 day trial period & you can't use them after 30 days. Is there any FTP software which is free for life and works great for normal users?

You can still use SmartFTP after 30 days, it just has a popup at the start telling you to register.
A good free FTP program is FileZilla (http://filezilla.sourceforge.net). I have found it can do certain things that SmartFTP cannot.
I came across it when SmartFTP used to disconnect me when I tried listing a remote directory with 17,000 images in it. So I tried FileZilla and that could do it fine.

I have had a lot of experience from FileZilla. It is both fast and realiable. It also has some interesting extra features that I have used more than once.

Correct link (the other one was parsed incorrectly):

http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/

It also has a fairly large documentation section:

CoreFTP is also very good.

Filezilla is the only way to go! I love the permission function the best. I struggled with some ssh program and people (techs) treated me like I was stupid. Filezilla rocks!

I seem to like Core FTP Lite over Filezilla. Likely because Filezilla is fugly.

Go with FileZila, defiantly the easiest, best free FTP program around

I use LeetchFTP... free and it's done anything I've wanted to do so far.

I like leechftp's multi-threaded transfers, but it doesnt handle DVD sized files. If a file is over 3.9gigs it wont show in the list of files on an ftp site, and LeechFTP errors at that point.

CoreFTP is what i use, never had a problem with it and it is easy to use.
