Although 'CmdFtp.exe' is fairly clean according to VirusTotal (1/71 -- but that one is Microsoft calling it a Trojan!), I would be very wary of using any FTP client (or any tool, in fact) that comes from a site that describes itself and it's upload policy as manifested below:
Video Software Download was created in August 2008, and provided user with a way to download shareware and freeware, which are developed by different authors(programmers) all over the world. We also promote the products of the authors' because we wish to improve the software industry throughout the world...

Submission policy appears to be equally bare minimum: https://software-download.name/z/submit-software.html.

Here's VirusTotal detection report of this previously unknown executable:

https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/637 ... /detection

To top all that, this tool isn't even natively portable as it saves its settings to '%APPDATA%\SoftwareDownload\CmdFtp'.

So, with a strong "buyers beware" tag, and considering this is a CLI tool, I'm moving the topic to "Resources & Links" pending further community feedback...

Although it is not natively portable, I can be sure that it is 100% clean and safe
