Open Source and Freeware Tools

Tools and utilities that can not only replace commercial equivalents, but can do better! You may note that an increasing number of them are available as portable versions (as what?).

Here they are alphabetically arranged:


Network Tools
  • Filezilla - free, open source FTP client (portable version)
  • Putty - Free Telnet/ SSH client (portable by default)
  • WinSCP - FTP/ SFTP and SCP for Windows (also available in a portable version)
Expect this list to grow every so often.
