    Not sure if this program can help me with this....
    I'm trying to set up a password protected area of a site that with then allow clients to download ftp files.
    username: jordan
    password: digital

    I don't like how the browser shows an index page with a list of files.
    If I use send files via ftp through my server, it opens up a new ftp window with a folder inside the window.
    It's much nicer, and I would like to mimic this.
    I just want the client to be able to type their username and password into my site, instead of the site of my web host.
    Any suggestions?

    Well, this is a FTP client and does have nothing to do how the file access area of a Website apears to the visitor. I understand to good what you are trying to do, however I'm afraid that regular HTML just won't do the job. What I would recommend one of the existing PHP/MySQL CMS's with a file manager extension. meaning each of your clients can register on the site - once they have a existing account, you can assign certain file(s) for a certain client to download etc.

    That sounds like a web design issue, and here at Fetch we're not experts in that area. You could investigate peterjp's suggestions (thanks peterjp!), or you should consult with your web host to see if they have any thoughts or can recommend someone to consult with.
