load up command prompt and type ftp. obviously being command led you will need to learn the commands, just type help, it'll tell you everything.

The software you talk of is just for transfering files, it is not an ftp server. if you want your own ftp site you will have to pay for space on an ftp server or install ftp server software on your computer - IIS comes with its own ftp server and is on your windows cd, assuming you have XP pro

the ftp from cmd.exe is working... but i don't know how to setup the connection....

the other have a gui, windows command line is text. If you want to give files for others to use you have to have a server. If you only want to get files from others you need a client. WSFTP, Cute, SmartFTP are not free you will have to BUY them if you want to use them.
