    Default uploading php files to server using ftp (is it secured)

    I believe that is not proper to upload php files to server using FTP eg. filezilla because
    it allows password to pass in a plaintext and thus not secured.

    Can someone point out to me the best secured free utilities
    someone can use and where i can get them.
    My internet connections is 3G wireless.
    I run window vista OS.

    Thank You

    Have you looked into Secure FTP (SFTP)?
    There are also other more secure methods of connecting to your server. You should be able to find information on those if you search for "secure connection to server".

    That's not the kind of thing we do here. You can use a search engine as well as the rest of us. And this type of question usually attracts spam, so this thread may be closed.

    SFTP and FTPS are not "things" that you can get. They are protocols (procedures; standardized ways of doing things: in this case, transferring files to a remote server).

    SFTP is FTP using SSH (secure shell).
    FTPS is FTP using SSL (secure sockets layer).

    I'm not sure why you're asking about where to find a free SFTP program for windows, since you already mentioned winscp5.17.
    If you're looking for other options, just (as Daniel said) do a little research. Google is your friend.

    BTW, FileZilla (and most other halfway-decent FTP clients) is fully capable of using FTPS.
