FTPii makes your Wii a remote FTP server, so you can make remote changes to any SD card inserted to your Wii, any USB device inserted to your Wii, and the Wii's actual NAND via a FTP client. This makes it easier to transfer files and eliminates the need to eject the SD card or USB device from your Wii and insert to your computer and vice versa. For FTPii to be used your Wii must be configured to a WiFi connection.
It's recommended to use the Filezilla client as your FTP client, as it is free and can be used the most major platforms, but any one will do.
