Why I need FTPRight ?
FTP& DM FtpRight allows you to upload files -- that is, copy files from your PC to other computers.
For example, you would upload files if you need to place your Web pages on a computer system designated
by your ISP (Internet Service Provider), or if you want to store a picture of something you want to sell
through an online auction site.
How does FTP Work?
File Transfer Protocol uses the client-server model: one computer (the FTP Host) runs a server
program "serving up" information to other computers. The other computers run client programs
requesting information and receiving replies from the server.
FTP DM turns your PC into an FTP client, allowing it to communicate with virtually all types of FTP sites.
When your PC is connected to the Internet (via a modem or local area network), FTP DM can connect to any
system that has a valid Internet Address and contains an FTP server program. Once connected to an FTP site,
you can download files, upload files, and copy files from one FTP site to another.
- Drag and Drop Files and / or Folders or combinations, between Local and Remote Directories.
- Resume downloads and Resume Uploads of files.
- Resume Downloading:
FTPRight can resume downloading of incomplete files. This works with all FTP sites that support this feature.
- Resume Uploading:
When transfer is broken during an upload, users may reconnect and resume at the point the transfer was broken. This feature is site dependent and is not supported by all servers.
- Directory Upload and Download
FTPRight allows you to upload and download entire directory tree structures to and from the remote server. This feature makes the mirroring of Web sites easier.
- Global Filter Masks
You can produce filtered listings (useful when trying to get a small piece of a large directory) by typing in a file extension or wildcard. You can filter results in local and/or remote panes with wild cards and filter file transfers recursively as well.
