If you use Firefox as your browser just go to the addons and install FireFTP. I've used it for years and it is a very good FTP program.

I've only installed it, and am just setting up the FTP settings to give it a go. But I have to express irritation at programs that ask "are you sure you want to exit" when trying to terminate the program.

I too am unable to import settings from FileZilla - the program asks me to specify a host, then gives me a German warning...

Datei kann nicht geoffnet werden.

along with

The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

If you want free FTP transfers that are easy to do, I suggest either CoreFTP or FileZilla, both of which are free. $65 is astonishingly expensive when there are free alternatives such as FTP Rush to do more complicated FTP tasks.

you need to register on their website for key.
throwaway email works fine. key received immediately.

intial thought on reading the description was,
ai solution for a problem not asked

W7 x64

very basic HTML help

seems they have a Free (lessor featured) version
of this program too? (not sure of differences?)

installs into directory of your choice, 10 MB
seemingly it would install a font, if necessary?

registers simply with the emailed key

window & most frames are resizeable & or
selectable (to be shown or not)

anon is not the default un/pw, so for an anon
system you need to enter it specifically

oddly you can rearrange lines within the
Protocol (status) window, but you cannot
copy from there?

you cannot view the input password, at all.
suppose Nirsoft utilities would see it but didn't try?

tried to connect to mozilla, & they said they only
accept anonymous connections, & that is as far as i could get

tried to connect to microsoft, & *at that point*,
Windows Firewall said, "do you want to allow filterftp,
& i said yes, & with that filterftp decided to hang.
(now WHY did Windows Firewall not prompt initially
with mozilla, but did with microsoft, i'll never know?!)

tried to connect to adobe, & they said they only
accept anonymous connections, & that is as far as i could get

something strange with the menu options, in that they do
not want to display (for me). like if i click Help, it
initially displays blank, then i have to move the mouse
to View, then back to Help for it to display Help's items?

layout looks OK, doesn't thrill me, but OK

at this point i'm stymied. the only FTP sites i have to
try to connect to are public, but i cannot seem to get
this to connect to any?

as far as the programs features, remote editing, i'm like
why would you want to do that? wouldn't you want to make
the changes local, then upload? i don't understand the
purpose? even if you made the changes on the server,
wouldn't you want to have a local copy too, in which case
you're going to copy back down to yourself? so if you
start on the server & copy down, or you start local &
copy up, where is the benefit?

Although I haven't yet had a chance to use it, I have downloaded FireFTP, a Firefox Add-on. It's is getting very high reviews (e.g., a couple compared it favorably to Filezilla) ...with caveat that it meets most needs and accomplishes it easily but might not satisfy the heaviest power users... see Giovanni's recommendations...

Giovanni, Welcome back! You were sorely missed.

I have no idea what this software does. I guess if I don't know what a FTP is, I probably don;t need it. However, I hear some of you talking about using it when setting up a website. I intend to do that this summer. Should I download this today and just put it in my toolbox? How about some of the other free offers - might I need those? I am dreading having to learn all this stuff - but if I want to sell my jewelry I guess I'll have to.

OMG - I just thought of something. If I do build a website, WOT will probably send it to never-never land as soon as I open it. What a world we live in today . . .

FilterFTP Pro works smoothly and quickly. I especially like its Find and Replace within files. Saves time if you have, for instance, to make a change in over a hundred files, as I recently did. (I had to download them then run the F&R of a commercial HTML editor then upload them.) You can also quickly edit a file without having download it first then upload it after editing or edit it locally then upload it.

No trouble with setup or registration on Win7 64.

I don't have my own website yet, but used to work for a company editing web pages when the webmaster was out.

The search feature sounds great, although I'm wondering if you can search and replace multiple files at the same time. I used to use Textpad for this and it would save some time.

BTW, check your system directory for gdiplus.dll. If found, rename the file and fire up the program. If it runs OK, you can delete the ghdiplus.dll.

If you're using the English language, you can also delete the help_GR and recom_GR folders. You can also delete the Update_Execute.exe file as we all allowed no updates

One problem I found was while trying to exit the program, the Do you want to exit the program box popped up and immediately disappeared. Te program closed and I had to use Windows Task Manager to kill the process. Tis occurred even before deleting the the files above.

To the developer, please remove the box to exit the program, a great annoyance.

#17. Are you going from a windows machine to a linux server? Windows can round up the file size to kb and the linux servers state the actual bytes.

I tend a few hobby websites using Firefox/Linux so the plugin FireFTP works just fine for that.

Filezilla is o.k. but for me, it always misreports file sizes. I have never figured out why. I can upload or download a file, and the file sizes will be different on the server and on the local machine.

As a webmaster, I was pretty excited to see this on GOTD. But, after trying, I could not see many advantages over some freeware like FileZilla, ACEFTP, CuteFTP, CoreFTP, or CoffeeFTP. Put into this the $65 cost, for me, I will continue to work with the freebies. But, appreciate GOTD and IN MEDIA KG offering it free here today, very generous. If you decide to use Filter FTP Pro, it will get the job done.

Not receiving a key, not in the spam filter. The "search in file" feature has great potential for web developers, would love to give it road test. Key me! Thanks.

@ekiz post number 5.......Thanks for the WEALTH of information there. You tested it? What were the issues? Why did you uninstall? A bit more information would be helpful to those of us that actually READ the comments before downloading......

@mkgdeveloper : how does your product compare with FlashFXP which also offer filtered transfers and more for a much cheaper price tag?
(65$ is not a serious price, seriously!)

This giveaway is nothing special and for sure it's not worth its price, in my opinion!!

Frankly, I don't see more functionality than what I already have in Total Commander. And, this is just one of the many features of Total Commander.

I'm kind of picky about FTP clients, most don't work the way I want them to. In the past I've used Cute, Smart, etc., and not been happy with them. Also never really cared for FileZilla, for a freebie I prefer CoreFTP.

That being said, I've just tried out this program out and I think I like it. I'm not sure I'd pay $65.00 for it, but I like the way it works and the functionality. It 'thinks' the way I work. When you use an FTP client many times a day that's important.

If this were priced a little better, and a single license could be used on multiple machines (i.e. desktop and laptop), I'd definitely pay for it. The freebies can't compare.

Thanks for the trial run, IN MEDIA KG and GOTD. Oh, and no problems at all registering...

Does this support secure FTP?

Reply   |   Comment by Genie  –  11 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

I use FileZilla

Reply   |   Comment by Tedyy  –  11 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-27)

Compared to free FileZilla, the small amount of extra functionality in search operations are not worth of $65.00 price tag. Other FileZilla functions more than cover the difference.


So thanks, but no thanks.

Sounds like an interesting concept... only problem is I cannot register the program: I got the key, but the program closes as soon as I try to access the Help/Register menu item.
