    "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"

    March 9, 2006  |   By dysonlu




    I'm a longtime user of SmartFTP. The latest version (v2.0) is a step backward. I log in to the same ftp site using different credentials. With 2.0, the app appends a label to the FTP address; usually the label reflects the userid used. Sometimes, the label ends up not matching the userid used.

    For example: " - joe" is tied to userid "peter" and password "h1den"

    If you want to correct this discrepancy by modifying the label, you can't -- you are stuck with it! Now every time you log in to as Peter, the address field will automatically switch to " - joe". So useless!

    This whole label thing is a mess and brings more confusion than any good.
