FTP Software

Postby Lori » Thu Apr 01, 1999 5:44 am

One more software question - FTP Voyager 6.0.0.5 - more freeware - supposed to have an Explorer-like interface. There are so many FTP software packages out there - I have no idea which one would be best. Any recommendations?

Thanks,
Lori

OK Lori.
I do agree there is many many good FTP programs out there.
As Tony-san said i like cute-ftp and i have used ws_ftp and a few others.
As far as a "explorer look and feel" goes there are a couple of them out. i personaly don't like them as they are "unfriendly" to schedule downloads or really get in and manage a site or plunder it ;-)
The Top 3 FTP programs in my book are.
1.Bulletprof ftp $30 Get it here Read about here
2.CuteFTP $35 Get it here Read about it here
3.Ws_ftp $0 Get it Here Read about it here
# 1 & 2 are shareware and worth it.
#3 if you use the stardard version is free but lacks some serious power.
The software you are talking aobut isFTP Voyager version 6.1.0.1 is out. Has a cost of $38 I have used it before and it is a windows explorer interface! But I really didn't like it compared to Cute or Bullet. I do have some FTP to FTP software which is good for moving sites and large amounts of data. But not really needed in this thread.
i hope this helps you some. But consider that 56K modem first !!!

Have fun and enjoy,
Dakkon

Try FTP Manager Lite. It is an excellent free FTP and SFTP client software. The clean interface is super easy to use.

For a GUI I like FileZilla. It works and it's free. I think it stores passwords in plain text so I wouldn't let it do that. Worth checking out.

I think this forum might be either misconfigured or hacked. On Ubuntu / Firefox I get a pop up asking me for your sites credentials. Anybody else seing this on this page? I suggest your site admin look into it.

Off topic, sorry about the overly large image above. I didn't realize I could post an image that would break the site's CSS. FWIW that could be fixed as well.
